Here are links to a couple of previous similar questions with answers which might help.


Depending on how much soundproofing you need, just a heavy tapestry, sound-absorbing moveable divider (like a cubicle dividers but can be ceiling height), or full-height bookcase with sound-absorbing board on the back or a cork-covered wall might work, rebuilding the wall with sound isolation measures and sound-deadening and sound-reflecting drywall and sound board over sound-absorbing wall insulation, to the extreme of building a sound-isolation secondary or even tertiary wall sitting on sound-absorbing mat and with sound-reflevting and sound-absorbing layers in the wall can be used.


Of course, be sure anything done meets applicable fire code, especially since it sounds like a commercial job - and of course also consider permanency relative to maybe having to undo it if you drop your rental agreement or lease if you do not own the building.
