Leading litigation and commercial law firm, rradar, have announced the opening of its Birmingham office, situated in the prestigious Somerset House building at 37 Temple Row in the heart of the city centre.
This is rradar’s fourth office in the UK and is a crucial part of the firm’s strategic expansion plan, following significant growth in recent years. rradar’s other offices are in Hull, Leeds and Glasgow.
Gary Gallen, CEO of rradar, said, “Birmingham is one of the largest and most successful professional and financial centres in the UK and a key city in which to establish a presence.
“The city’s success reflects our vision and strategy and this move is in line with our five-year business plan, which includes pro-active and focussed expansion for rradar across the UK.”
rradar was launched in Hull in East Yorkshire and within a few short years, now has over 130 full-time employees, four key strategic office locations and a turnover of over £8 million at its last year-end. It continues to expand rapidly with plans for more UK offices, more recruitment and its first acquisitions.
The firm’s teams provide quality advice and skilful representation to a diverse commercial client base across all industry sectors, ranging from small owner-managed businesses to large multi-national corporates. Pioneers in reframing the delivery of legal services, rradar uses legal expertise and ground-breaking digital tools to proactively manage, educate, and advise clients, reducing their legal risk.
“We have hired a team of incredibly talented and smart people who bring their expertise and dedication to support our vision to modernise the legal industry, transforming what we can do and how we can do it. We offer a technology-driven, preventative strategy and solutions that make the law more accessible and affordable for our clients,” said Mr Gallen.
Andrew Cameron, chief legal officer of rradar, said, “rradar has built a strong reputation over the past few years and our success has been driven by the quality of our people.
“I look forward to overseeing the expansion of our Birmingham office, attracting the best legal talent the city has to offer to increase and enhance our team and our service offering for our clients.”

The company also won two 2018 UK Business Tech Awards – Tech Company of the Year (Small) and Lifetime Achievement award for Gary Gallen.
rradar has been placed in the top 50 of the Northern Tech Top 100 (a ranking of the region’s 100 fastest growing tech companies) three years running and has just been shortlisted in two categories for the Hull and Humber Tech Awards 2019.
The rradar ethos fosters creativity, energy and innovation which, in turn, stimulates the success of the business and its fresh approach to the law.
