Jonathan Ng

Global Legal Director
Jonathan oversees Ashoka’s in-house legal matters for its global headquarters. He manages Ashoka’s relationships with its pro bono legal counsel, which includes some of the leading global law firms. He also coordinates with Ashoka’s 33 country offices on matters related to corporate structuring, governance and compliance. Ashoka believes it is uniquely situated to be a leader in developing the emerging area of law and social entrepreneurship. Because social entrepreneurs do not fit neatly into the traditional nonprofit or for-profit categories, they are constantly pushing the boundaries of the laws that apply to them. As such, he is working with leading law schools and practitioners to help identify and respond to legal issues unique to social entrepreneurs. Prior to joining Ashoka, Jonathan practiced law at White & Case LLP in its New York office as a member of the energy, infrastructure and project finance practice group.
