We know, from working with barristers for a couple of decades that the barristers CV is the first port of call for clients looking to instruct. CVs need to have a clear call to action, a hierarchy of information and encourage the audience to pick up the phone to the clerk to see if the barrister is available for instruction.
Despite the clear importance of the CV, some sets appear content to send clients badly designed, commercially incompatible pieces to clients. The reality is the CV is probably the single most important item the individual barrister has in their arsenal to give to a client. For this reason alone we ensure that the sets we work for have CV's that fulfil two key requirements- they give the information to the end use in a manner that they appreciate, and they make the road to instruction as expedient as possible.
