Conn. Assistant Attorney Gen. Joins Giuliani Firm

Apr 22 2008 | 1:32pm ET

John Brunjes, a former assistant Connecticut attorney general and director of the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association, has joined the Houston-based law and lobbying firm best known for featuring for New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Brunjes has been named a partner in the private investment funds practice of Bracewell & Giuliani. He will be based in the firm’s Hartford, Conn., office, focusing on private equity, venture capital and hedge fund formation, operations and investment transactions.

As an assistant in the Connecticut attorney general’s finance and antitrust divisions, Brunjes was that state’s primary securities enforcement lawyer, Bracewell said in a statement.

“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,” Evan Flaschen, who heads Bracewell’s financial restructuring group in the Nutmeg State, said. “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.”
