The sale of 06 Ormskirk Ltd to Chorley Group | Davis Blank Furniss
Sonio | DBF Law Solicitors

Davis Blank Furniss has acted for the vendors of 06 Ormskirk Ltd in its sale to the Chorley Group, which included 06 Vauxhall Ormskirk and 06 Mitsubishi Skelmersdale, for an undisclosed sum.

The two businesses will become part of the Chorley Group, which currently comprises nine franchises and 250 employees, and will trade as Chorley Group Vauxhall (Ormskirk) and Chorley Group Mitsubishi (Skelmersdale).

Paul Byron and John Dickson, joint managing directors at 06 Ormskirk and clients of Davis Blank Furniss, said: “Selling your business is always going to be a tough decision but we made the decision that we wanted to sell to a business that really shared our values. The last 15 years have been an incredible journey, and we leave behind a business that we are proud of and we know it is in great hands with Chorley Group. We’re delighted to get it over the line.”

Adam Turner, Chorley Group managing director, said: “We are really excited to welcome the 06 businesses to the Chorley Group family. This has been a long process given the current restrictions and we are grateful to the team at CG Professional for their focus and determination in closing the deal. We’re thrilled to get it over the line.”

The Davis Blank Furniss team advised the vendors on all aspects of the share sale and ancillary property transaction – from its inception through to completion. The team was led by Sonio Singh, partner and head of the corporate department, with support from Lauren Sever. Shiva Shadi, head of employment, and Gregory Carr, property solicitor, were also involved.  David Kendrick of UHY Hacker Young provided sale-side Corporate Finance advice.

Sonio Singh (pictured) said: “We are pleased to have acted in this deal and obtain a good outcome for all parties.  I’m sure the strategic acquisition of 06 Ormskirk Ltd will be a great addition to the Chorley Group and its offering.”

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
