In­no­va­tive le­gal firm rradar earns award recog­ni­tion

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

THE York­shire law firm rradar has won a ma­jor prize in a com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by the Spec­ta­tor

mag­a­zine.

Rradar, which has of­fices in Leeds, Glas­gow and Hull, tri­umphed in the North East cat­e­gory of the Spec­ta­tor’s Eco­nomic Dis­rup­tor of the Year Awards, which are or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with pri­vate bank Julius Baer.

The awards were pre­sented at a glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony in cen­tral Lon­don.

Gary Gallen, the founder and CEO of rradar, said:“The cal­i­bre of en­tries to these in­au­gu­ral awards was in­cred­i­bly high and to be recog­nised as a re­gional win­ner is hugely im­por­tant to us.

“It’s a real tes­ta­ment to the hard work and com­mit­ment from the team at rradar. With­out their pas­sion­ate be­lief in our busi­ness, our vi­sion for the fu­ture of le­gal ser­vices just wouldn’t have hap­pened.

“The awards evening was a truly in­spir­ing event and we were de­lighted to share the fan­tas­tic venue with so many other in­spi­ra­tional and in­no­va­tive or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­vited guests,” he added.

An­drew Neil, chair­man of the Spec­ta­tor

and of the judges, said: “rradar is an ex­cep­tional law firm, which is a dis­rup­tor in the truest sense of the word.

“It has dragged the tra­di­tional le­gal pro­fes­sional into the 21st cen­tury, com­pletely miss­ing out the 20th cen­tury.

“That is a truly mag­nif­i­cent achieve­ment.

“The judges were es­pe­cially im­pressed by the man­ner in which rradar al­ways puts its clients first. By us­ing tech­nol­ogy in a very ef­fi­cient and fo­cussed way, the firm pro­vides swift, rel­e­vant and cost-ef­fec­tive ad­vice. This process has turned the pro­fes­sion on its head.

“There is no doubt that rradar has a very bright fu­ture in­deed. Its ap­proach is of spe­cial ben­e­fit to young and ex­pand­ing busi­nesses, who need le­gal ad­vice, but can­not pay the earth for it. The firm is a worthy win­ner of our in­au­gu­ral North East Dis­rup­tor of the Year Award.”

Martin van der Weyer, busi­ness edi­tor of the Spec­ta­tor, added: “We re­ceived en­tries from ev­ery corner of the UK, in busi­ness sec­tors rang­ing from ad­vanced ge­net­ics to ice cream and from mu­si­cal in­stru­ment-mak­ing to cy­ber se­cu­rity.”
