“We’ve worked with Corvus on a range of matters including business as usual legal/operational support and transactional work. As a closed-ended funds specialist, Corvus understood our business from the start and were able to provide tailored, solution focused, risk adjusted advice. When picking external counsel to assist with a recent transaction, we had no hesitation in choosing Corvus.”

“Corvus worked closely with Hermes GPE between February 2020 and August 2021. Corvus hit the ground running and quickly developed a deep understanding of our culture, commercial drivers and risk appetite, blending seamlessly with our investment, finance and tax functions. Corvus really felt like an in-house team and their practical, solutions-focussed advice was highly valued by the business.”
