Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard has announced it will open a new office in Clayton, Mo. on Nov. 1.

The new location comes after the addition of seven attorneys from the Helfrey, Neiers and Jones law firm.

“Offering superior service to our clients is our first priority when evaluating opportunities for growth,” said Sandberg Phoenix managing partner John Sandberg. “The attorneys of Helfrey, Neiers and Jones are very highly skilled and bringing them to our team, as well as establishing a location in Clayton, allow us to more fully and conveniently meet the needs of our clients.”

Attorneys joining Sandberg Phoenix are David Helfrey, David Neiers, David Jones, Philip Graham, Carl Lothman, Nicholas Van Deven and Dawn Humphreys, who specialize in real estate, banking, insurance, health law, estate planning, intellectual property law and business litigation.

The firm has more than 100 at seven offices in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas.

“Sandberg Phoenix was a great fit for our firm’s next step,” said Neiers. “Being able to tap into a diverse group of attorneys delivers considerable additional resources to our clients and presents an opportunity to grow in new areas of legal service.”

The Clayton office will be located at 120 S. Central Avenue, directly adjacent to the St. Louis County Courthouse.

The new location will be managed by shareholder Bhavik Patel, and will provide a convenient meeting location to individuals and businesses based in Clayton and throughout St. Louis County.

Bhavik has worked with Sandberg Phoenix since 2004 and serves as the business practice group leader and chair of its Wealth Planning Team.
