Barbara T. Sicalides Quoted in Politico Article, 'State AGs Crash T-Mobile Deal'

Barbara T. Sicalides, a partner with Pepper Hamilton and head of the Antitrust Section of the firm’s Trial and Dispute Resolution Practice Group, was quoted in the June 12, 2019 Politico article, "State AGs Crash T-Mobile Deal."

DOJ officials are negotiating with the companies, but the lawsuit likely indicates the states don't like the direction the DOJ is heading, said Barbara Sicalides, an antitrust attorney with Pepper Hamilton. States typically try to work with federal antitrust enforcers because they often "don't have the investigatory tools or resources to pursue these cases on their own," she said, adding, "To get out ahead of the DOJ is significant and suggests an insurmountable disagreement."
