Neeraj practiced law before the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court between 2013 – 15, where he argued appeals and writ petitions relating to award of government contracts, conduct of public utility enterprises, and shareholder disputes. He has also acted as a transactional lawyer and advised on issues of foreign investment, corporate governance, and commercial contracts.

Neeraj is interested in how the social context affects rules of private law that govern contracts and corporations. In his work on contracts, he explores the variance in principles that legally validate an agreement across borders. His ongoing projects also include an enquiry into the changing nature and role of ​‘modern’ companies, where he explores their embeddedness in the society. In his research, he attempts to capture the factors both internal and external to the firm that reconcile the conflicts between multiple corporate stakeholders. These inclinations also draw him into Law and Development, which includes comparatively studying interaction between markets, development, and legal institutions.

He is currently an external doctoral candidate at the Junior Professorship for International Administrative Law and Public International Law, Faculty of Economics, Law and Social Sciences, University of Erfurt. His PhD project is on ‘Shareholder Primacy and Stakeholder Conflicts in Corporations’.
