Kirsty Martey

Senior Counsel & Data Protection Adviser

I am a working-class woman from various North London council estates (lifelong Arsenal fan!). I attended a state all-girls Catholic grammar school, and I was the first person in my family to go to university, first reading History at Cambridge (graduating in 2009) and then obtained my Law degree from the College of Law in 2011.

I started my legal training at Stephenson Harwood LLP (qualifying in 2013) before moving over to Neuberger Berman’s in-house Legal team, where I am now Senior Counsel.

I am passionate about equity, inclusivity, and diversity, with a particular focus on championing women in the workplace and breaking down class barriers through social mobility. I actively participate in the Neuberger Berman mentoring scheme (as both a mentor and mentee) and I co-chair the E, I & D Committee in EMEALA.
