By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 7 Feb 2019
Well-known Hull firm rradar has become the newest partner of a national initiative aimed at turbo-charging the country’s budding law-tech sector.
The legal disruptor has joined Barclays Eagle Labs, and will now offer support to start-up law businesses and fast-growing companies.
Hull was last year announced as an Eagle Labs hub, in a move which sees the city’s C4DI provide a space for innovative businesses to thrive.
Gary Gallen, CEO at rradar, said: “I am very excited to partner with Barclays Eagle Labs.
“This partnership further cements rradar’s mission, combining education, innovation and technology as key parts of our business and we welcome the opportunity to support this fantastic initiative and provide advice and feedback, as well as network with likeminded companies on their initiatives.

“The combination of our unique take on delivering smarter legal services and integrating technology into our solutions for our clients, with Barclays’ extensive experience is a winning formula for businesses, start-ups and the tech market.”
The law-tech Eagle Labs incubator, in Notting Hill, London, aims to become a “thriving centre of excellence” for law-tech businesses.
It will turbo-charge the UK’s emerging law-tech sector, helping companies start up, scale up and succeed.
It offers co-working, incubation, mentoring, introductions to major companies and other crucial services for law-tech firms.

Jon Hope, director at Barclays Eagle Labs, said: “LawTech is a growing field and we believe bringing together the best industry players is key to driving its success.
“By connecting start-ups, law firms, and other organisations in this space we can encourage the free-flow of ideas, ultimately leading to better products and services.
“That’s why we’re excited to welcome rradar as a new partner and member of our community, building the strength of the Eagle Lab network.”
rradar has been a law-tech pioneer for several years.
It was ranked 88th in the Sunday Times Tech Track 2018, placed in the top 50 fastest growing tech firms in the North of England for 2017 and 2018, and listed in the Deloitte EMEA Technology Fast 500 rankings 2017.
rradar is also a member of the LSEG Elite group, an international business support and capital-raising programme for ambitious and fast-growing companies.
As an Eagle Labs partner, rradar will work closely with emerging businesses, helping drive growth and innovation in the industry.
