Anand and Anand is a leading firm in the IP field and its expertise in addressing complex IP challenges of all types is widely acknowledged.

We regularly deal with IP protection and the prosecution of contentious IP matters in different forums, including the courts at all levels, patent offices, trademark offices, the design office, the Intellectual Property Appellate Board, WIPO and the National Internet Exchange of India.

We balance commercial realities with legal pragmatism and draw on our well-honed expertise and instinct in the field, coupled with our profound understanding of IP management in India. The firm has a keen interest in innovation and offers creative solutions that tackle the root and not merely the symptoms of a problem.
