Slade BondChief Majority Counsel Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law, at U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary
Slade is the Chief Counsel of the House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee, which has jurisdiction over the antitrust laws and competition policy, administrative law, bankruptcy, remote sales tax collection, and other commercial law matters. In this capacity, he recently led a bipartisan congressional investigation into the state of competition in digital markets, one of the most sweeping congressional inquiries into monopoly power in the last 50 years. The investigation culminated in a comprehensive report entitled “Investigation of Competition in the Digital Marketplace: Majority Staff Report and Recommendations,” which totaled more than 450-pages and included a number of recommendations for legislative reforms. In June 2021, he oversaw the introduction and passage of a series of bipartisan bills out of the Committee to implement the Report’s recommendations and promote competition online. In the 116th Congress, he oversaw the enactment of 12 bills into law, including legislation to promote competition in pharmaceutical markets, whistleblower protections for exposing criminal antitrust violations, and bankruptcy protections for consumers and homeowners during the pandemic, as well as others. Prior to this, Slade served as counsel on the Subcommittee, where he oversaw hearings related to net neutrality, administrative law, and competition. He received an LL.M. from The George Washington University Law School, a J.D. from the University of Kansas School of Law, and a B.A. from the University of Mary Washington.
