Alexandra Weatherdon

Alexandra works in Stone King’s Charity & Social Enterprise Team and is also part of the Information Law team, working across the firm’s Charity and Faith sectors.

She advises a wide range of local, national and international charities, on all aspects of charity law and regulation, and has developed extensive experience in restructuring projects.

Alexandra advises charities, not-for-profits and individuals on a wide range of issues, primarily regarding charity law, but also information law.

Having started her career in a not-for-profit association for cancer research, and following a fulfilling secondment to the in-house legal team at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation, Alexandra’s experience means she recognises the broader context of her clients’ organisations and is careful to understand her clients’ needs.

Alexandra delivers training as part of the firm’s Trustee Training Programme as well as to individual charities. 

Information law
