Managing Partner at Anand and Anand
Pravin Anand has been counsel in numerous landmark IP cases, including those involving the first Anton Piller order (HMV); the first Mareva injunction order (Philips); the first Norwich Pharmacal order (Hollywood Cigarettes); the first case on moral rights of artists (Amarnath Sehgal); the first order under the Hague Convention (Astra Zeneca); several significant cases for pharmaceutical clients such as Merck, Novartis, Pfizer and Roche; and India’s first standard-essential patent litigation judgment for Philips and pre-suit mediation litigation for Nokia. He has received the National Innovation Foundation Award from the Indian government in recognition of his pro bono work for grassroots, rural innovators.
His creative approach to intellectual property is reflected in the pioneering initiatives that the firm has taken to develop unique IP concepts and products, including an IP board game, India’s first IP-themed play (Brainchild), an IP comic (the Adventures of Mr IP), as well as creating IPONOMICS, a coffee table book about important IP matters.
Mr Anand is a co-author of Halsbury’s Laws of India on intellectual property and has contributed chapters on Indian IP law to many prestigious publications.
