According to an article published in the New York Times, "In Mr. Meier’s absence, the firm said Tuesday that four associate partners would manage day-to-day operations of the New York headquarters: Vivian Lee, Reynolds Logan, Bernhard Karpf and Dukho Yeon. Michael Palladino, a partner and head of the company’s Los Angeles office, will oversee all of the firm’s operations and projects."
