Speaker

Profile

Jindrich Kloub is a partner in the Brussels office of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati and a head of its European antitrust team. He focuses on competition and antitrust matters, including civil and criminal enforcement efforts and investigations.

Prior to joining the firm, Jindrich was executive director of operations at the Hong Kong Competition Commission (HKCC), where he was responsible for all antitrust enforcements since 2017. In this role, Jindrich 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.

Jindrich 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, Jindrich worked as a case handler 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 of the financial services sector involving LIBOR and Forex benchmark rates.

Jindrich speaks at international conferences, authors articles on competition law, and maintains deep connections within the international enforcement community. He also has been a visiting professor of competition law at Université Catholique de Lille for over 12 years.
