James D. Barnette

Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Capitol Hill veteran Jim Barnette focuses his public policy practice on energy, telecommunications, health care, consumer protection, and the environment, together with Congressional oversight and investigations related to those areas.

During a span of 20 years, serving four different chairmen, he served as General Counsel to the US House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, which exercises jurisdiction over half the legislation introduced in Congress every year.

In this role, he helped enact more than 100 public laws, including the landmark Medicare Modernization Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and legislation in areas as diverse as bioterrorism preparedness, energy, telecommunications reform, consumer protection, and internet commerce.

Jim served as principal advocate for the committee’s position with the Senate, House leadership, House Parliamentarian, and other House committees, including Agriculture, Appropriations, Armed Services, Budget, Judiciary, and Ways and Means. He led numerous high-profile committee oversight and investigation efforts across its jurisdiction.

In private practice, Jim’s substantive knowledge, connections, and three decades of Capitol Hill experience benefit clients in their most pressing situations.

He represents Fortune 500 companies and trade associations, many of them consumer-facing “disruptors,” in the committee process and in the oversight of their industries, frequently in high-profile hearings and sustained legislative efforts.
