I am so chuffed to work for an organisation that uses the law to tackle the biggest environmental issues to safeguard the future for generations to come. The teams at ClientEarth are determined to put their expertise to good use and protect the environment and people’s health, and I am delighted to work towards that mission

Kirsty Schneeberger

Head of Strategic Partnerships

Kirsty Schneeberger joined our London office in Spring 2017 having previously worked at the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) as the portfolio manager for ClientEarth.

Kirsty works in the Development Team to manage the relationships between grant-makers and philanthropic foundations who are inspired to give money to fund the work that ClientEarth does. Kirsty worked for the UNFCCC Executive Secretary’s Office in the build up to COP21, culminating in the Paris Agreement, as the lead of the investor engagement programme.

Whilst Kirsty does not practise, she was called to the Bar in 2015 and has a range of environmental policy and law experience including acting as a consultant for DECC (as was), working for the legal Unit at WWF-UK, paralegaling at 6 Pump Court Chambers and Scottish law firm R & R Urquhart, and leading the UN Rio +20 stakeholder engagement process for the Stakeholder Forum.
