In yet another episode of unusual law firm-branded merch, it would appear US outfit Kirkland & Ellis has its own range of delightful wooden chopping boards.

Yes, you heard it right. A photo posted by Instagram legal meme account @nonequitypartner — which in their bio describes themselves as ‘Attorney at LOL’ — shows what appears to be a pair of Kirkland & Ellis branded chopping boards decorated with an array of cured meats.

It’s not clear whether the branded boards are freebies or simply part of the firm’s in-house catering equipment. All we know is we want one.

Other examples of enviable corporate clobber in years gone by include Womble Bond Dickinson’s branded fleece gilet — perfect for those pre-COVID corporate ski trips.

Meanwhile, international firm Squire Patton Boggs previously sold a colourful line of leisure wear and sports gear — sticking its logo on tote bags, bandanas, polo shirts, baseball caps, footballs, golf balls, drinks bottles, oh and 100 metres of satin ribbon.

It’s not a chopping board, it’s a serving board. It’s part of the K&E tableware they use for client events. Not a big whoop if you ask me. Law firms put their logos on every surface for marketing purposes.

You forgot to add the branded Boggs roll. I use it daily on the office traps, just to remind myself what a turd of a firm SPB is.

If I arrived at someone’s house and saw this, I think I would have no choice but to turn around and leave immediately

5/10 for the boards and 1/10 for charcuterie presentation.
