We are delighted to have advised John Hill Associates Limited on their sale to Diskin Capital Partners.

John Hill Associates Limited (“JHA”) provides a comprehensive range of architectural, building surveying and project management services for the construction industry. 

Having developed JHA’s reputation in the 11 years since completing a management buy-out in 2010, the majority shareholders approached us to provide corporate finance sell-side advice. 

Our corporate finance team supported the shareholders in preparing the business for market, running a confidential process with a focussed selection of strategic acquirers. 

We utilised our network and sector knowledge to approach potential strategic acquirers within the built environment and construction services sector. 

Maintaining momentum and transacting during the Covid-19 lockdown presented its own unique challenges and we are pleased to have found a strategic acquirer, securing a succession plan for the majority shareholders. 


We are grateful to Grant Thornton for the support and advice received during the transaction process. They showed exceptional commitment throughout to achieve a positive outcome for us. The team’s dedication and expertise added value from start to finish, driving the transaction to a successful conclusion.

Allan Hair Director, John Hill Associates Limited
