MIAMI (January 14, 2019) – Holland & Knight advised Brownstone Equity Partners, a new private equity fund based in Boston, on the creation of its debut fund. The fund has raised an initial $40 million.
Brownstone was created by Evan Horton, who previously worked with WestView Capital Partners and Pine Tree Equity Partners. Brownstone will focus on the investment in and growth of small capitalization companies.
"I've worked with Evan on numerous M&A transactions and it was an honor to help launch his new venture," said Jordan Taylor, a Holland & Knight partner who focuses on mergers and acquisitions and private equity. Bradley Van Buren, a partner with Holland & Knight who has significant fund formation experience, played a significant role in the representation.
