Hannah Kubie
Partner, Head of Charity and Social Enterprise Team

Hannah is an experienced lawyer for charities and social enterprises. She advises on incorporation and registrations, governance issues, operational legal matters and mergers and transfers. Her particular expertise is in commercial drafting (such as contracts and grants) and she acts for a number of publicly funded organisations. She frequently advises on collaborations and partnerships, procurement and trading.

Hannah joined Stone King’s Charity & Social Enterprise team in 2010.

Prior to working at the firm, Hannah worked at Linklaters (Corporate and Financial Markets) and Capsticks (Public Sector).

Her decision to specialise in the charity sector was in part influenced by her secondment at an international children’s charity.

Charity law & Social Enterprises

Recent work includes advising on the following areas:

  • Several governance reviews for large charities and groups, including assisting with implementing recommendations.
  • The restructuring of an international group of charities and social enterprises.
  • Complex charity registrations and advising on specialist charity law areas such as disposals of property, treatment of funds and, as part of our social finance team, on social investments by charities.

Hannah is regularly asked to speak at events, including for umbrella bodies and at the Westminster Policy Forum, and to contribute to sector articles. 


Hannah’s legal expertise includes providing commercial advice to social enterprises, charities and socially driven commercial organisations. Recent advice includes:

  • Preparing a range of model agreements to allow charities which provide services to work collaboratively with other organisations in tendering for public procurement opportunities and delivering under those contracts.
  • Working as part of the firm’s social finance team advising on the receipt of grants from various sources (and flowing down the requirements of those grants) to enable an innovative funding pilot. 

Hannah read law at King’s College London and completed her Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Law School.
