Keith Songhurst

Partner, Head of South Essex Dispute Resolution Team

I am a partner in the firm and I lead the firm’s South Essex Dispute Resolution team. I am based in our Chelmsford office. I am approachable, reliable and responsive, and will quickly identify and give clear, concise advice on the important issues in any matter. As no two cases are ever exactly the same, my job offers great variety and achieving great results for my clients can be very rewarding.

I specialise in property litigation and, where disputes cannot be resolved by negotiation or mediation, have extensive of experience of resolving disputes in the County Court, High Court, First-Tier Property Tribunal and the Lands Tribunal. I am also experienced at dealing with professional negligence claims, contract and construction disputes.

I am a member of the Property Litigation Association.

I am a director of the Colchester Catalyst Charity, a grant-making charity that helps organisations provide support to people with medical conditions or disabilities in North East Essex.

I enjoy sport, particularly golf and football, although my participation these days more often tends to involve running the line or refereeing my children’s football matches. I also enjoy playing the guitar, though not in public!
