It comes back not just to myself, but also to the business people to whom I have to report. They were very impressed with the Eversheds team. They dealt directly with the business here on quite technical, complicated issues. They gained the confidence of the business and demonstrated that they understood the issues very quickly. They could converse and ask relevant questions and challenged the business people here in respect of the issue itself. This was very impressive."

Hermes Fund Managers Limited

The team was exceptional. They gave a very holistic service by helping to identify the problem and by coming up with a fairly novel way of solving it. It was not just a matter of it being a pure academic pursuit. I think that there was a certain amount of creativity involved in the solution."

Phoenix Group Holdings

On the question of the team demonstrating relevant knowledge of our business, once we had explained our business and the hedge fund product they were brilliant."
