Yorkshire law firm rradar has become the newest legal technology partner of Barclays Eagle Labs.

The new Eagle Labs incubator, located in London and launched in partnership with the Law Society this year, aims to become a “thriving centre of excellence” for legal tech businesses.

It offers co-working, incubation, mentoring, introductions to major companies and other crucial services.

As a partner in the initiative alongside other law firms and academic partners University College London and the University of Liverpool, rradar will provide support, advice, feedback and guidance to help entrepreneurs develop, test and refine their products.

Gary Gallen, CEO of rradar, commented: “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: “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.”
