St. Louis - Cortex

A hub for innovation.

The Cortex district in St. Louis is a vibrant home to entrepreneurs and incubators. Co-locating in the Cortex district enables Husch Blackwell to provide emerging technology, agribusiness, life science and other businesses with ready access to cost-effective legal services as they grow their ideas.

Attorneys from several of Husch Blackwell’s industry teams rotate through our office in the @4240 Building. We advise Cortex tenants on intellectual property protection, financing, labor and employment, contract negotiation and other matters critical to business success.

Our Cortex attorneys are actively involved in the innovation community at large. Their dedicated involvement ensures they are tuned in and well-equipped to understand the startup culture and the issues these companies face.

"Husch Blackwell (HB) comes with a great reputation, but most importantly Myers Dill was willing to discuss OUR needs. Myers promised me HB would be available for Keystone Bio as we needed and when we needed. That was extremely important for us. One of the biggest roadblocks to a startup of any kind is the need for exceptional legal structure, while at the same time not becoming cash-poor in the pursuit. Myers and HB were great to work with as Keystone Bio worked through that phase."
