For 35 years, Bob Laufer was a bankruptcy and litigation attorney with Paul, Weiss, Rifkin, Wharton & Garrison in New York. When he retired in 1999, he went in-house with one of his favorite clients: New York Road Runners. Laufer had worked with the organization extensively beginning in the late 1970s, when then–NYRR president and legendary runner Fred Lebow picked Paul Weiss to be the group’s preferred outside counsel. “When I decided to retire from my law practice, I spoke with Allan Steinfeld [former CEO and president of the NYRR], and I said: ‘We’re leaving you without a lawyer. Why don’t I work as in-house counsel for a year, and if that works out, we’ll extend it another year.’ “
