Yorkshire specialist litigation and commercial law firm rradar is the newest law-tech partner of Barclays Eagle Labs in partnership with The Law Society, launched last year.
The law-tech Eagle Labs incubator, located in Notting Hill, London, aims to become a “thriving centre of excellence” for law-tech businesses. It will turbo-charge the UK’s nascent law-tech sector, helping companies start up, scale up and succeed.
As a partner in the initiative alongside other leading legal firms and academic partners University College London and the University of Liverpool, rradar will work closely with emerging businesses, providing support, advice, feedback and guidance to help entrepreneurs develop, test and refine their products with the potential to implement new technology into their firms, driving growth and innovation across the industry.
Gary Gallen, CEO of rradar explained: “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.”
Jon Hope, Director of 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.”
