“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.”
