The directory describes Stone King as a “top-quality national education practice with strong experience advising independent and state schools” with one client saying: “first and foremost they are excellent lawyers – they know the charity and education sectors really well”. Among the practitioners individually ranked in the firm’s education team are Head of Sector Roger Inman, who is praised for his “outstanding technical and commercial awareness of developments within the education sector”, and Partner Steven Ravenscroft and Partner Julian Blake.
Stone King’s leading charity and social enterprise team continues to be recognised as “a front-runner in the field acting for all types of charities” and “frequently seen working for household name organisations on some of the largest projects in the sector”. Chambers UK 2019 highlights numerous notable practitioners in the charity team. Among them, Stone King’s Chairman Ann Phillips, of whom it says: “She is distinguished by her market insight and client-focused approach” and Jonathan Burchfield who is “well regarded for his knowledge and insight of the sector”.
