As summer programs wind down across the country, summer associates at Coudert Brothers decided to have a last hurrah. All 30 of them descended upon New York’s Bryant Park and rearranged lawn chairs to spell the firm’s name in gigantic letters visible from the 44th floor of the office. “It was the brainchild of Bryan Goldstein,” says Armando Ramirez, a summer associate. “During a meeting on the 42nd floor, he glanced out of the window and had an epiphany.” Coudert Brothers’ office overlooks the famous park where New York’s top designers stage their biannual fashion shows. “We met at 9.15 am; it took us about 15 minutes total to do it.” Goldstein says. “It’s the last week of the summer program; I thought ‘Let’s do this as a last team effort before we leave.’” Messing with New York public property wasn’t easy: Goldstein had to call the park director to obtain permission. According to Coudert, the New York Law Journal reported in 1998 that 92 percent of their summers returned to work at the firm — the city’s highest acceptance rate.
