Partner and head of charity team, Stone King LLP
Jonathan’s experience covers both private client and charity matters but he has concentrated almost exclusively on charity matters since the early 1990s. He was a partner with Nabarro Nathanson before joining Stone King LLP in May 2006.
Jonathan’s work focuses on advising charities on all aspects of charity law and practice, and on their corporate governance. He is also head of Stone King's legacy team and as such advises charities on all aspects of legacy fundraising and administration. He regularly speaks and writes on charity law matters.
Jonathan stepped down in June 2007 after some 12 years' service on the executive committee of the Charity Law Association (having acted as its deputy chairman for some years). He is a trustee (and former chairman) of the Tubney Charitable Trust, a significant grant-making charity.
He has recently completed a term as trustee of Creativity Culture & Education, a charity established by the Arts Council in order to take over from it the running of the government’s flagship creative learning programme with schools, and is a governor of St Edward's School, Oxford.
Jonathan is a member of the firm's management team.

The Charity Tribunal will allow the Cup Trust to bring an appeal against the Charity Commission's investigation into the Trust, which has been accused of being set up as a tax avoidance scam.
The Charities Act 2006 has, overall, proved to be a good piece of legislation that is fit for purpose, the NCVO Charity Law Review Advisory Group has concluded.
It is relatively common for the status to be questioned of people who are not appointed as trustees but who act as if they are trustees. In this sad story it was the reverse.
This cautionary tale relates to a small arts organisation whose trustee body had become top heavy, with inherent potential for conflicts of interest. Jonathan Burchfield reports.
How can a charity balance the requirement to deal with its non-charitable trading company on an arm's length basis with the need to monitor and control its investment in that company?
