rradar makes key non-executive board appointment

rradar, the litigation and commercial law firm, has appointed Jeremy Cohen as non-executive director to its board.

Jeremy is the latest in a range of high-profile appointments by Hull-based rradar, which specialises in digital and insurance innovation.

Jeremy brings a wide-ranging skills profile together with extensive experience gained over a 25-year career as a corporate lawyer, leading large projects across multiple offices, teams, and countries.

From 2015 to 2021, he was the CEO of the UK, Ireland and Middle East region of Dentons, the world’s largest law firm.

In this role, he was responsible for leading the growth strategy for a £200+ million business of 200 partners, with 1500 employees across 14 offices. He led a strategic transformation through client focus, growth, technology, and innovative delivery models.

Jeremy also sat on Dentons’ global board and management committee, which oversee global strategy, growth, client and market positioning, innovation, and risk across all the 80+ countries and 200+ offices in which Dentons operates internationally.

Before this, Jeremy was an M&A and corporate lawyer, and a partner since 2000, acting for a wide range of listed and unlisted clients from Fortune 500 to start-ups.

He was appointed last year as a senior adviser to investment bank Panmure Gordon & Co and for the past eight years, he has been a trustee of City, Hackney and Waltham Forest MIND, a mental health charity. He also recently set up an executive coaching business with a former colleague, Fulfilled Leaders Ltd, specialising in coaching executives and partners on leadership effectiveness and fulfilment.

In his new appointment as non-executive director, Jeremy will work alongside rradar’s CEO Gary Gallen and the expanded board, increasing and broadening the capabilities of the firm’s strategic leadership and advising on the direction and growth of the company.

Gary Gallen, rradar CEO, said: “I am delighted to welcome Jeremy to the board as
non-executive director. This is a significant appointment for rradar and to have secured someone with Jeremy’s legal background, with a proven track record of experience and achievement at the highest level in the world’s biggest law firm shows the growth potential and exciting future development of the company – further strengthening our board capabilities.

“2022 sees a pivotal growth point for rradar, going from start-up to scale-up and we are now at the threshold of another stage of our journey with key acquisitions and further office expansion to be completed this year as part of our five-year business strategy.

“The past two years have been transformational ones for so many businesses, and rradar is no exception. We are excited to play a key part in shaping the future of the legal industry, how it reacts to change and technological developments in a rapidly evolving world. For the sake of our clients and our staff as well as our commercial partners, we need to be equipped with the very best talent, expertise, and acumen available, and I am pleased Jeremy will be part of this journey with us.”

Jeremy said: “What Gary and rradar have achieved over the past decade is truly remarkable, making waves and disrupting the legal industry from within. Gary’s vision of what a law firm can become using technology and a breadth of legal and other services to genuinely transform the offering to clients, is inspiring – as is the passion and energy with which he and his team are pursuing it.

“rradar’s journey from start-up to leading player in the legal sector is well underway. Some big challenges still lie ahead though in scaling up to bring rradar’s unique service model to a wider range of clients, while maintaining its commitment to continued innovation and dramatically enhanced client outcomes. I am very pleased to be coming on board for the next stage of the journey and helping rradar to achieve its ambitions.”
