Kirkland & Ellis’ graduate recruitment website inadvertently promotes viagra

Well its award winning office does look a bit like a penis

The UK graduate recruitment website of US giant Kirkland & Ellis inadvertently promoted viagra earlier today.

Browsing the firm’s “Plan Your Own Career Path” section, wannabe Kirkland lawyers, who could pocket a whopping £147,000 upon qualification, were greeted by what appeared to be an advert targeting individuals suffering from erectile dysfunction.

As well as promoting the US giant’s “flexible” approach to training, the grad site — which has since been returned to its former morning glory — inadvertently plugged “healthymanviagra”.

While it’s still not clear what caused the viagra-related IT gaff, it does seem rather appropriate given that Kirkland’s office — which bagged the ‘Most Impressive Law Firm Office’ gong at our awards show earlier this year — resembles a giant glass penis. The firm declined to comment.
