PARK RIDGE, N.J., June 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pallas Capital Advisors, LLC ("Pallas Capital") is pleased to welcome Eric Lalime, CFP®, CIMA® C(k)P®, and Patricia Lucas to the firm's expanding team of experienced wealth advisors and client relationship management professionals. Mr. Lalime, who manages over $300 million and was previously a Senior Vice President and founder of Lalime & Associates at Merrill Lynch, will steer the new Park Ridge, New Jersey, office.
Mr. Lalime said of the move, "After very careful consideration and research, it's clear that Pallas Capital will allow my team the opportunity to significantly enhance our current practice. I believe that the firm's high-touch, client-focused model will allow my team to best serve our clients moving forward."
"We are thrilled to have Eric and Patricia join the Pallas team," Pallas Capital's CEO and Founding Partner, Richard Mullen, stated. "Eric approaches his business the same way we do at Pallas, always having the client's best interest in mind, and shares in the vision that the independent model we've created here is truly the best way to provide an entirely holistic, unbiased approach to wealth management."
The new office serves to accommodate the growing momentum around the industry move to independence. The news follows last month's announcement of another $300 million team joining Pallas Capital from UBS. Park Ridge will be the third location for the firm since it was founded in July of 2019. The firm has plans to open at least two additional locations in 2021. The decision to expand into New Jersey further reinstates Pallas Capital's long-term growth initiative and the firm's commitment to provide world-class wealth management solutions to clients, and the advisors that serve them, across the nation.
