Living and Working in St. Louis
Our firm is located in a central suburb only a 15 minute drive from downtown St. Louis. A cosmopolitan city and business district, Clayton features beautifully-lined streets and 70+ acres of passive and active park areas that compliment its upscale neighborhoods, specialty boutiques, shops, and cafes. Clayton, rich in art and sophisticated culture, still manages to maintain Midwest values and quality of life. Read more about the city of Clayton.
Because Clayton is so centrally located — near all major arteries around St. Louis — accessibility to our office is easy. From the nearby urban areas of the Central West End, Soulard, and University City to the more rural, suburban areas of Chesterfield, Augusta wine country, or nearby Illinois - all tastes, styles, and preferences are represented in both new home developments and historic residences.
Clayton's bustling business district is home to seventy Forbes and Fortune 500 headquarters and branch offices. University life keeps the area hopping too with nearby Washington University and Saint Louis University, both with exceptional law schools.
Originally settled by Pierre Laclede and August Choteau in 1764, St. Louis is most famously known as the Gateway to the West — the launching point for early explorers and westward emigrants. Any history buff will find years' worth of places to visit and things to see in the vicinity.
St. Louis' charm ranges from the blues clubs of the historic Soulard district, to the cobble-stoned streets of the mighty Mississippi downtown riverfront, to our lovely Forest Park, developed at the turn of the century to draw and awe attendees of the 1904 World's Fair. With winding trails for runners, bikers and skaters, a public golf course, several ponds, streams and lots of resident wild life, Forest Park still hosts exciting festivities such as The Great Forest Park Balloon Race and international festivals. The park is also home to a popular outdoor amphitheater featuring stage productions all summer long, one of the nation's last free zoos, and a terrific museum.
With many rivers, lakes, rolling hills, and wooded areas, Missouri and Illinois also offer tremendous options for outdoor sports lovers who enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, river rafting, and camping.
St. Louis is a great place to live and work!
