Tue, 03 Oct 2017 | MERGER

A law firm near Manchester has merged with a Clitheroe-based counterpart.

Harrison Drury of Preston will move its Clitheroe arm into Chenery Maher's Church Street base, who will take on the Harrison Drury name as part of the deal.

Partners Irene Chenery and Carol Maher will continue to work as consultants for the company.

John Chesworth, executive chairman of Harrison Drury, said: "Chenery Maher shares our values in that the firm looks after its people and has a strong desire to make it possible for clients.

"The firm has great people who will only enhance our growing home and family service. Meanwhile, Chenery Maher’s clients can benefit from our commercial law expertise. This move also gives us larger premises from which to continue developing our offering in the Ribble Valley and wider East Lancashire region."

Irene Chenery also commented, saying how the two firm's shared aspirations makes the merger and perfect fit.
