This is the event at which even the city’s busiest and most successful legal luminaries patiently wait in a long line to wish their leader and each other good luck in the year ahead. At times, the line of more than 1,000 well-wishers will flow through the ballroom foyer, around corridors, past meeting rooms and down to the escalator that leads guests up to the ballroom level. But the honoree, Carl S. Primavera, who leads the Association through 2001, won’t be complaining even though he’ll be at the head of the line the whole time pumping as many as 13 hands per minute. In fact, Primavera, a partner at Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg & Ellers, says he has been "anticipating this moment with pleasure. In a hi-tech age, now more than ever it’s great to meet everyone face-to-face and preserve this time-honored tradition.
