Texas plans to hire Ken Starr, the former independent counsel in the investigation that led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, to represent the state in an antitrust lawsuit against Alphabet Inc.’s Google, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The state plans to hire Starr’s firm, the Lanier Law Firm, and Keller Lenkner LLC if it files a lawsuit stemming from its investigation into the company’s role in the online ad market, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said Tuesday in a statement.
