So here is the solution:

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
 struct A {
    void fn_a() {}};
 struct B {
    void fn_b() {}};
 struct C : A, B {
 template<typename T, typename... Ts>
concept PointerInheritsFrom = std::is_pointer_v<T> &&
(std::is_base_of_v<Ts, std::remove_pointer_t<T>> && ...);
 void call_stuff(PointerInheritsFrom<A, B> auto p) {
 int main() {
    C z;
    call_stuff(&z); }

I think this is what you are looking for.
