Why Not Downtown?

Another firm passes up downtown St. Louis...

Atlanta-based Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, P.C., a national employment and labor law firm, has opened a temporary office in Creve Coeur and is expected to move to a permanent office in Clayton in December or January. The firm plans to have 15 to 20 lawyers within the next three to five years.

Their Atlanta headquarters is located in that city's downtown, so they're clearly not averse to operating in an urban environment, so why wouldn't they choose a location in downtown St. Louis? Frustrating...
