Jonathan  Burchfield

Jonathan Burchfield

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.
