It gives us immense pleasure to announce that Anand and Anand is the only firm to be ranked ‘Highly Recommended’ in both litigation and prosecution. The list recognizes five of our members namely – Pravin Anand, Archana Shanker, Vaishali Mittal, Neeti Wilson, and Dhruv Anand as leading lawyers in India’s Patents Landscape.

Here is what IAM says about the firm and our leaders:

“Considered “one of the best firms in India for IP matters” by rights holders locally and abroad, Anand & Anand is the only outfit to feature at the top of both the litigation and prosecution tables. The practice’s unrivalled reputation derives from the hard work of the patents and design team, whose members have dedicated themselves to perfecting their service offerings over more than four decades. Throughout his illustrious career, “eminent lawyer” Pravin Anand has made invaluable contributions to the Indian IP scene while representing some of the world’s largest corporations in numerous landmark cases. A respected voice in the country when it comes to FRAND matters, Vaishali Mittal is credited with prevailing in India’s first post-trial SEP judgment. Mittal has recently been working alongside Pravin in high-stakes litigation for a leading pharmaceutical company. Dhruv Anand makes his second appearance in the IAM Patent 1000 this year. His dispute resolution and litigation skills are regularly sought out by companies such as Monsanto and Pharmacyclics, as well as several luxury brands. Neeti Wilson is a force to be reckoned with in the non-contentious space. A passionate defender of patent rights and the environment alike, she participates in regional and international conferences to spread awareness of IP and biodiversity issues. One of the most successful female practitioners in the market, Archana Shanker leads the patents and design team.”
