Connecticut Hedge Fund Association Member Joins Bracewell & Giuliani

Bracewell & Giuliani LLP has appointed hedge fund specialist John A. Brunjes as partner in their Private Investment Funds practice.

“Connecticut is home to hundreds of hedge, private equity and other alternative investment funds, as well as a number of the country's largest institutional investors,” said Evan Flaschen, the Connecticut-based chair of the firm’s Financial Restructuring Group. “John is a leader in the hedge fund community and a great addition to our highly-regarded private investment funds practice in New York and our premier national and international financial restructuring practice,” added Mr. Flaschen.

Brunjes is to handle law matters for institutional and individual investors, investment funds, and fund managers, as well as for public and private operating companies. His practice focuses on private equity, venture capital and hedge fund formation, operations, and investment transactions, with particular emphasis on advising private domestic and offshore pooled investment funds and managed accounts and their stakeholders. He also advises funds and operating companies on state, federal, and international compliance and enforcement considerations.

In the managed funds sector, Brunjes has formed and represents institutionally-sponsored and entrepreneur-organized hedge funds ranging in size from smaller funds with state-registered advisers, to larger domestic and international funds and funds of funds with billions of dollars in assets under management.

Brunjes has served as an Assistant Attorney General in the Finance and Antitrust Divisions under Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, during which time he was Connecticut’s primary securities enforcement lawyer.

Bracewell & Giuliani LLP is a prominent international law firm with more than 400 lawyers in Texas, New York, Washington, DC, Connecticut, Dubai, Kazakhstan and London.
