When Herb Rubin’s partner died, he was recruited by a big law firm with a mandatory retirement age. Rubin, 100, the name partner at Herzfeld & Rubin in New York, is glad that he turned that offer down. Otherwise, he would have been forced to retire 35 years ago.

Paul Weiss partner Mordie Rochlin, 106, did retire 35 years ago when he reached the firm’s mandatory retirement age of 70. But Rochlin couldn’t imagine life without the firm, so he never actually left.
