About Tanvir Sanghera

Brains and experience!

Tanvir joined Inlet after practising commercial litigation for about three years. Though her experiences were broadly positive, she wanted to re-focus her practice to take on cases with a human element.

As a fourth-year call to the bar, Tanvir has already gained experience beyond her years. She has appeared at every level of court in British Columbia, including recently prevailing at the B.C. Court of Appeal in the matter of E.N. v William L. Rutherford (B.C.) Limited.
