HWF’s ability to drive the process forward de-risks the M&A processes we are involved with. We count on their reliability and expertise, even where there are complex issues or challenging timetables

James Renahan, Travers Smith

We use HWF wherever the opportunity arises because they advise, structure and execute W&I insurance policies with great efficiency. Our trust in their service and process allows us to focus on our job resulting in positive client outcomes on their M&A deals

Helen Croke, Ropes & Gray

I am always happy to recommend HWF on deals; their in-depth experience of both M&A and the insurance market, combined with a pragmatic approach, leads to smoother processes, better coverage positions and ultimately happier clients
