He has played a significant role in such cases alleging Anti-Kickback Statute violations, off-label pharmaceutical marketing, Medicare and Medicaid overbilling, and other purported statutory or regulatory violations. Recently, Rajeev drafted motions to dismiss that won three such cases, in federal courts in New York, Virginia, and Georgia.  

Rajeev helped draft the successful petition for certiorari and winning merits briefs in Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations v. Brown, 131 S.
