Rajani was recently ranked Band 4 by Chambers USA, who noted that she is a "go-to finance attorney" due to her "quality of expertise and level of work." Clients state that she is "very commercial, always available and gives solid judgement and advice" and that "she is really up to speed on the market.” They also note that "she's great at representing you, she's good at fighting for things you need but never leaves people on the other side of the table feeling disrespected." In addition, Rajani was recently recognized as one of New York Law Journal's Rising Stars of 2017 and in the annual list of “Top 40 under 40” lawyers in the Daily Journal.
