Partner Sandor Haboczky has left the Budapest office of Schoenherr to join the Kapolyi Law Firm.
Haboczky, who joins Kapolyi as Partner, has been a Partner with Schoenherr for the past seven and a half years, where he headed the real estate, regulatory/energy, and litigation/dispute resolution practices. According to Kapolyi, "through these years, he has gained significant experience with complex real estate transactions, e.g. office, retail, hotel, and logistics investments and developments as well as with real estate aspects of numerous M&A deals." In addition, the firm reports, he "was previously acting as a leading partner of a Budapest law firms’ association, primarily assisting a set of domestic private investors, where he joined following a period of more than five years spent as M&A lawyer with the Hungarian office of Baker & McKenzie."
Haboczky brings with him Senior Associate Peter Gullai, who has been working on Habocky's team since 2015, focusing primarily on regulatory, energy law, and real estate mandates.
"With these new hirings we would like to further strengthen our well established real estate practice," commented Managing Partner Jozsef Kapolyi. "Sandor is a very experienced lawyer, forming also an assembled and dynamic team with Peter, and I am sure he will be a good leader of our expanded real estate team of five lawyers that has already been showing significant skills in recent domestic and international transactions. The extended Kapolyi team, consisting of 16 lawyers by now, shall not only play dominant role in relation with capital market and M&A deals but will also be able to sufficiently respond to the current market growth in the Hungarian real estate sector. Last but not least we want to give a real boost to the overall development and expansion projections of our law firm.”
