Lee joined Stone King in July 2015. He was also previously the Registrar of the Diocese of St Albans and Joint Registrar of the Diocese of Guildford.
He specialises in a mixture of ecclesiastical, education and property matters, with a particular focus on the Church of England, although he has acted for other faith groups. He has expertise in historic educational and ecclesiastical trusts and has advised numerous Church of England dioceses and schools on such issues. Lee has acted for a variety of diocesan boards of education and multi academy trusts on the implications of the Academies Act 2010 as well as the conversions of Church schools to academy status. As part of this he has developed an expertise in the School Sites Acts and associated tax issues and issues to do with the development of church school sites.
As a former Diocesan Registrar, Lee has dealt with the day to day legal activities of a Church of England diocese as well as giving advice on more contentious issues to senior staff and others on such issues as clergy discipline, safeguarding and data protection. He has acted for individual clergy and parochial church councils on property and purely ecclesiastical matters.
Lee has led numerous seminars on ecclesiastical and educational matters nationally and has a Masters Degree in Canon Law from Cardiff University.
