Shoreline Equity Partners’ $300 Million First Private Equity Fund Formation

Ropes & Gray LLP provided legal counsel to Shoreline, while M2O Private Fund Advisors LLC acted as exclusive placement agent to Shoreline.

Shoreline Equity Partners closed its inaugural private equity fund, Shoreline Equity Partners Fund, L.P.

Shoreline began fundraising in March, in conjunction with the Firm’s launch, with an initial target of $250 million and was oversubscribed at its hard cap of $300 million in commitments.

Shoreline received commitments from a prominent group of limited partners including insurance companies, fund of funds, family offices and high net worth individuals. Shoreline’s general partners and its executive network also contributed significant capital to the fund.

Shoreline Equity Partners, LLC is a purpose-driven lower middle market private equity firm. The Firm’s goal is to develop and implement collaborative solutions with portfolio company professionals to drive growth as well as scale and optimize operations.

The Ropes & Gray team advising Shoreline was led by asset management partner Peter Laybourn (Picture) and included tax partner Adam Greenwood, asset management counsel Alyssa Clough Horton, asset management associates Yoni Levy and Christina Kenny, tax associates Alexa Voskerichian and Colby Rogers, and corporate associate Stanford Law.
