It’s no secret that PR powerhouse LaForce + Stevens is dissolving after 20 years in business. But, what we find a little surprising is that James Lafore is staying in the office he once shared with his former partner Leslie Stevens.
“We launched LaForce a few weeks ago,” the public relations vet tells Page Six. “Most of the former L+S staff and clients have moved over to my new company. We are staying put in the same office, just below Union Square.”
After the bitter break up, Stevens tells Page Six, “I fought to keep LaForce + Stevens together and was shocked that, after 20 years, it had to end this way. I respected James and valued our partnership, so the way the company was dissolved was a blow. I am exploring many options and am optimistic about my next move.”
We wish them both luck in their next endeavor!
