Rajiv D. Parikh Featured in Politico New Jersey

Partner Rajiv D. Parikh was featured in a recent Politico New Jersey article entitled “State senator wants to crack down on some political fundraisers” regarding potential legislation that would “ban political fundraisers from New Jersey if they don’t follow state election law.” Mr. Parikh offers insight as to why the courts may not find this type of regulation constitutional stating that “…enabling ELEC to ban someone from their chosen profession may be viewed as draconian and violative of individual rights and therefore subject to challenge.”
