RSG India writes: "One of the premier IP firms in South East Asia, with a client roster that includes most well known blue chip names. The firm is probably involved in most significant IP matters relating to India, and has vast experience both in litigation and non-contentious work. While it is no longer a family firm, much of its success and reputation still lies with managing partner Pravin Anand. The firm has suffered a high rate of attrition in previous years."
RSG India 2011 ranks Anand & Anand as the tenth best firm in the country.
