Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, the premier provider of legal services to technology, life sciences, and growth enterprises worldwide, announced today that Jindrich Kloub has joined the firm’s antitrust and competition department as a partner in the Brussels office. Kloub’s more than 10 years of service at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Competition and his most recent Hong Kong Competition Commission (HKCC) role illustrate the range of his enforcement agency experience and connections. His addition fortifies Wilson Sonsini’s acclaimed antitrust and competition practice in the United States and Europe.

Most recently, Kloub was executive director of operations at the HKCC, where he was responsible for all antitrust enforcement since 2017. In this role, he oversaw numerous precedent-setting investigations, including one that led to the HKCC’s first abuse of dominance enforcement action, as well as its first enforcement outcomes involving resale price maintenance, digital markets, leniency, settlements, commitments, director disqualifications and compliance remedies.
Kloub also has substantial international antitrust and competition policy experience. For example, in addition to leading the development of a fining methodology and cooperation and commitments policies, he oversaw major revisions to the HKCC’s leniency guidelines, which have been described within the private antitrust and competition bar as a world-class policy.
Before joining the HKCC, Kloub worked as an attorney at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Competition (DG COMP) for more than a decade. During that time, he conducted numerous international cartel investigations, including major international cartel investigations in the financial services sector involving LIBOR and Forex benchmark rates.
“Because Hong Kong’s competition law was based on EU competition law, Jindrich has worked at two enforcement agencies that are highly engaged in monitoring and enforcing competition and antitrust laws of importance to our clients,” said Doug Clark, managing partner, Wilson Sonsini. “Jindrich’s enforcement and policy experience is the ideal combination to complement our already highly regarded antitrust and competition practice. We’re very excited to welcome him to the firm.”
Kloub’s addition comes just over a year and a half after Wilson Sonsini announced that Brent Snyder was joining the firm’s antitrust and competition practice on March 1, 2021. Snyder also joined the firm from the HKCC, having served as its CEO from 2017 through 2020.
“I’m pleased to be joining Wilson Sonsini’s accomplished competition and antitrust team, and excited about my role in helping the firm continue to expand its impressive, global practice and presence in Europe,” said Kloub. “This position not only gives me a chance to apply my enforcement and policy experience to help clients manage matters in both Europe and the U.S., but it’s also an exciting opportunity to work with Wilson Sonsini’s impressive range of clients.”
“Jindrich’s addition to our Brussels office further demonstrates Wilson Sonsini’s growing presence and strong brand in Europe – especially within the complex and constantly changing digital regulatory framework that impacts both antitrust and data protection,” said Cedric Burton, managing partner of Wilson Sonsini’s Brussels office. “Our growing team will be able to offer a new level of service and expertise on the ground to our clients within the European Union.”
Kloub earned his Master of Laws from Charles University School of Law in Prague in 2003 and his LL.M. from Columbia Law School in 2009. He has served as a visiting professor of competition law at Lille’s Catholic University for more than a decade, spoken widely at international conferences, and written numerous articles on competition law.
