About Palm Tree

Palm Tree was built for businesses that need to prepare for and execute on strategic events such as transactions, transitions, and transformations.

Our History

Palm Tree is the modern M&A advisor. Our integrated investment banking, transaction support, and strategic finance services power the strategic events that drive businesses forward.

We guide clients through high-stakes processes. Our analytical intelligence accelerates decisions, enabling them to better prepare for and execute on transactions, transitions, and transformations.

Investors engage with us to help them highlight opportunities, mitigate risks, and reduce deal friction so they can act decisively and focus on realizing investment objectives. Entrepreneurs and management teams engage with us to help them prepare for, navigate, and succeed in strategic events so they can focus on company performance and preserve operational capacity.

We were born out of private equity. It gives us the resilience, flexibility, and perspective of owners and operators. Our team comes from private equity, Big-4 accounting, investment banking, and business operations experience. We understand the time-sensitive, uncompromising demands of strategic events and we deliver advantageous outcomes for private equity firms and business operators alike.

Pardis Nasseri founded Palm Tree in 2010 with the entrepreneurial vision to build a single source for the services that businesses and private equity firms need in strategic events.

His prior work as a principal investor in a private equity firm had revealed a market opportunity. Nasseri built Palm Tree to focus exclusively on M&A: transactions, transitions, and transformations of businesses.
