Fruitless existence

Following Tulkinghorn's recent exposé on Linklaters' decision to withdraw jellybeans from its meeting rooms, he can now reveal that the firm is pursuing further perverse initiatives with its client offerings.

In the latest move to cut costs, it is rumoured that Linklaters has removed all fruit from its meeting rooms. Initially, it restricted the contents of its fruit bowl to kiwi fruit, bananas and oranges, on the grounds that any other fruit posed a health and safety risk. But after realising just how ridiculous such a barren fruit bowl would look, the firm decided to ditch the lot.
