Hi Colin,

I think it's clearly unethical, especially because you say that the client
(larger company) developed these templates in the first place.

Is it legal? I don't know, but it smells like a lengthy lawsuit waiting to
happen. I'd suggest to your boss that the savings from "reusing" the
original templates are not worth the risk of legal action.
