Former Maryland Congressman Albert Wynn is representing T-Mobile as it works to merge with Sprint to create the No. 2 wireless carrier.
CNN reported today that the Justice Dept., which was considered the biggest potential hurdle to the deal, is expected to approve the $26B merger "within days."
That nod will be contingent on whether the parties can agree to concessions, such as the divestiture of Sprint's Boost Mobile pay-as-you-go unit.
The Federal Communications Commission also must sign off on the Sprint/T-Mobile marriage. The telecoms then must settle a lawsuit filed last week by attorneys general of New York and California that charged the merger would reduce competition in the marketplace.
As senior director at Greenberg Traurig, Wynn is involved in "legislative monitoring and outreach on issues related to wireless telecommunications" for T-Mobile.
In Congress, he served on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and its health and telecommunications subcommittees. Wynn was senior Democratic whip and chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus Political Action Committee.
