Position

Gabor is passionate about housing, and having worked in the sector for Browne Jacobson for over 10 years, it was our delight to promote Gabor to Partner in May 2017 in recognition of his success and focus on his social housing clients.

Gabor has a recognised expertise in social housing development work and complex funding work (including leading the property element of the £75m private placement for Local Space). Additionally, Gabor is currently acting for Sanctuary in relation to the acquisition of 118 units at Bretch Hill; acting for Metropolitan in relation to the acquisition of 78 dwellings at Edwalton; numerous additional development acquisitions for EMH Housing, Waterloo and Westleigh.

Gabor (and the team as a whole) is sought out by an extensive range of clients because of this social housing expertise, including not only housing associations but also private-sector developers and funders.

Its market-leading reputation is underlined by its breadth of expertise; in the retail sector, practice head Sarah Parkinson has a wealth of experience of acting for household-name retailers on acquisitions and phased relocations, among other matters. The education sector is another strength of the firm, which advises on academy conversions, academy mergers, and acquisitions and disposals of freehold interests, among other mandates. Deputy practice head Barry Sully heads up a specialist development and housing team, which acts for developers, housing associations, local authorities and landowners. Elsewhere, the health industry is another key workstream of the practice. Suki Tonks, Robert Wofinden and Gabor Taller are other key figures.

Social housing

Within: Social housing

Browne Jacobson LLP is widely recognised nationally for its full-service offering in the social housing sector, where its ability to draw upon strengths across multiple disciplines comes to the fore. It has a  longstanding track record in development and property work, but its wider practice also covers social housing funding (including private placement funding transactions), housing management, antisocial behaviour, insurance litigation and regulatory work. Illustrative of the firm's outstanding reputation, it counts two of Homes England’s strategic housing association partners as among its clients (out of a total of 15 partners nationally). Barry Sully heads up the practice, which has had an uptick in work from grant-funded development clients in relation to major development programmes, and has also had a strong flow of securitisation mandates. The firm also has a standout reputation in plot sales. In addition to Sully, Gabor Taller and Ben Standing are among the other recommended individuals at the firm.
