Law firm Capes Sokol renewed 15,527 square feet of office space at Pierre Laclede Center and signed a new 5,079-square-foot lease at the property.
Located on five acres at 7701 and 7733 Forsyth Boulevard, Pierre Laclede Center is a two-building office complex in the highly desirable St. Louis submarket of Clayton. The office complex has many onsite amenities, including a fitness center equipped with lockers and showers, a full-service café serving breakfast and lunch daily, garage parking, a car wash, security and two full-service banks. The St. Louis Club, the city’s premier business club, is also located at Pierre Laclede Center.
“Pierre Laclede Center is an iconic office building with a strong set of amenities in a vibrant and accessible location,” said Brett Merz, senior vice president at KBS and asset manager for the property. “We are pleased that Capes Sokol has renewed and expanded its space.”
Capes Sokol, a resident of Pierre Laclede since inception, is a St. Louis-based law firm focusing on business, commercial and intellectual property litigation; trusts and estates; white collar and other criminal defense matters; tax litigation and controversy; and corporate and real estate matters.
“Capes Sokol has experienced steady growth over the last 15 years,” said Jeff Cohen, managing partner of Capes Sokol. “This expansion will provide additional office space for new attorneys and practice groups, such as our newly added Trusts and Estates group, and position the firm to accommodate for planned future growth.”
