Shant Boyajian

Attorney at Law
Nossaman LLP

Shant Boyajian helps public agencies employ a wide range of innovative methods to deliver the nation’s largest, most complex infrastructure projects.  He offers deep experience in the policy issues behind infrastructure strategy, having previously served as Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.  In this position, he served as lead author and negotiator for the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act – the largest infrastructure bill in U.S. history – which provided long-term funding certainty for the nation’s surface transportation system.

Mr. Boyajian’s government experience also includes serving as Counsel to the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit for the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.  While there, he helped negotiate and draft the language for federal-aid highway programs within the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act – which provided more than $105 billion in funding for surface transportation programs in fiscal years 2013 and 2014.

He also previously served as Counsel to the Panel on 21st Century Freight Transportation, which proposed many of the policy reforms ultimately enacted in the FAST Act.  Earlier in his career, he served as a law clerk to the General Counsel’s Office at the U.S. Department of Energy, and as Legislative Aid to the Vice Chairman of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors in Loudoun County, Virginia.
