Palm Tree LLC, an M&A advisor offering investment banking and related business consulting services for private equity firms and businesses worldwide, has opened an office in Dallas, Texas, to cover the South Central region of the U.S.

The company’s establishment in Dallas complements its existing offices, including the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles and its Midwestern branches in Chicago and Detroit. The expansion coincides with Palm Tree’s efforts to strengthen its team, which now comprises 120 professionals providing finance, business consulting and transactional expertise to middle-market businesses through the M&A process, from sale preparation to deal closure.

“This move enables us to expand our client services across a broader region and more widely deliver our well-established, high-quality business consulting and investment banking offerings,” comments Phillip Cooper, a managing director at Palm Tree. “Texas has emerged as a magnet for driven professionals and business leaders from across the country, fostering a dynamic community of growing companies with diverse financial and transactional needs.”
