Innovative legal firm rradar earns award recognition
THE Yorkshire law firm rradar has won a major prize in a competition organised by the Spectator
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.”
