Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci LLC
Joplin law firm Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci LLC relocated its Branson office to Springfield on July 28. Office manager and paralegal Karen Reasoner said the firm purchased the 4,300-square-foot building at 811 Boonville Ave. for an undisclosed amount from Mark Steiner’s Head Factory LLC. Steiner’s GigSalad booking business, which relocated downtown in March, and Kingdom Coffee & Cycles previously occupied the space. Costs to relocate from 301 W. Pacific St., Ste. B, in Branson were not disclosed. Reasoner said Springfield attorneys and partners Brian Johnston and Joseph Weidhaas specialize in personal injury law, including motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice and workplace accidents. Three paralegals work in Springfield, Reasoner said. With attorneys licensed in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, the firm also has an office in Rogers, Ark.

Civil Kitchen & Tap
Finnegan’s Wake and Sequiota Bike Shop co-owners Anne Baker and Tom Muetzel opened Civil Kitchen & Tap on Oct. 16 at 107 Park Central Square. Baker said the 5,000-square-foot space, formerly the home of Trolley’s Park Central Pub, is leased from DT7 Properties LLC for undisclosed terms. The new restaurant and bar is run by Clayton Baker, who managed Ophelia’s before it closed on East Walnut Street, and Thomas Hong, who managed Finnegan’s Wake. Baker said menu items range from $8 to $15, and the restaurant employs 35. Declining to disclose startup costs, the restaurateurs in November plan to open The Copper Still upstairs, which would bring seating to 300 and drink offerings to 28 beers on tap and 30 on the wine list.

Hudson Hawk Barber & Shop
Hudson Hawk Barber & Shop owners Thad Forrester and Paul Catlett on Oct. 5 opened a store at 3348 S. Campbell Ave., the fifth in the local chain. The 1,200-square-foot former home of disaster preparedness store Just In Case – in between a Chipotle and a Taco Bell – is leased for undisclosed terms from Snake River Rentals LLC, Forrester said. After founding the original shop downtown in April 2013, Forrester said the latest employs four barbers and brings Hudson Hawk’s employee count to around 35. The company, which launched an appointment-booking app in August, styled the newest store similar to its others, with hardwood floors and old-school barber chairs.
