Partner, Residential Property
Gary specialises in residential property and has done so for over 20 years.
His clients give him glowing references describing him as “prompt, efficient and friendly”. A comment Gary was particularly touched by said “absolutely fantastic service – thank you!! Gary is an absolute star. The service provided by Gary was always of the highest quality – very quick to respond to any queries and all queries were dealt with in a very thorough and detailed manner. As first time home buyers we could not have asked for a better first purchase experience – thank you”.
Gary’s most memorable moment in his career was set at a very early age when, as an articled clerk (now known as trainee), he took a case to the Court of Appeal and appeared in front of the renowned Lord Denning MR. A case involving injunctions and tree preservation orders, seeing Lord Denning make one of his famous judgments was something Gary has never forgotten.
Gary’s career started in local government where he was involved in setting up residential conveyancing processes. He then moved into private practise and for 10 years, in addition to residential conveyancing, undertook litigation and family work. He says this mix of work broadened his general skills and has given him the ability to think outside the box and find solutions to difficult problems.
Gary joined Hart Brown in 2005. He moved to the new Wimbledon office in September 2008 and became a Partner and head of the office in April 2009. He received excellent feedback from his clients:
“I thought Gary Score was fantastic. You were recommended to me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you myself. If the need arises I would definitely be using Hart Brown’s services again. Many Thanks”
“Great balance between explaining the legal side of things yet not telling us what we don’t need to be concerned with. Fantastic at resolving any issues/queries we have. Many thanks Gary. A fantastic service. We’d definitely recommend you (and Meryl) personally and use you again”
Here are Gary’s answers to a brief interview about his interests and achievements :

Her most memorable case was the lease of some advertising space – for a well known electronics company in Leicester Square!
Here are Tamzin’s answers to a brief interview about her interests and achievements.
What’s your favourite book?
The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan – so much more than the Game of Thrones.
What would you have done if you had not become a lawyer?
I would have liked to have become an archaeologist. History fascinates me – particularly the Tudor era.
What’s the high point of your legal career?
Apart from joining Hart Brown? When I drove past a school and recognised it because I had been involved in the legal work to widen the pavement. It was the first time I realised that the work I did made a difference and I still get a buzz when I recognise buildings or places because I have been involved in the legal work behind them.
What is the one thing you wished you had known at 18 that you know now?
Don’t hold onto your opinion too tightly – both you and circumstances change. Don’t be afraid to change your mind!
