Hunton boosts Brussels with Commission hire

Hunton & Williams has boosted its competition practice, hiring Robert Klotz from the European Commission for its Brussels office.

Klotz has served out a 12-year career in the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Competition, and most recently worked in the energy and water unit.

He specialises in antitrust litigation under Articles 81 and 82 within the gas, electricity and telecommunications sectors and will join the firm as a partner.

Hunton has been steadily growing its Brussels competition practice, last year hiring partner Michael Rosenthal from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
