Bryan Cave, the latest international law firm to set its sights on Miami, has signed a lease at the Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami for 10,015 square feet.

The St. Louis-based firm opened its Miami office—its 27th worldwide—this month with two prominent litigators from DLA Piper, Pedro Martinez-Fraga and C. Ryan Reetz. Martinez-Fraga will serve as co-leader of Bryan Cave’s international dispute resolution team and Reetz as office managing partner and hiring partner.

The 55-story Southeast tower is home to several other prominent law firms, including Arnstein & Lehr, K&L Gates, Squire Sanders, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan and White & Case.

Founded in 1873, Bryan Cave has more than 1,100 lawyers.
