Our firm

Martin Sheard spent eleven years at British Columbia's most well-recognized employment law firm. Martin remains close with all his former co-workers but has decided to start Inlet law with a vision of upholding the highest standards of the profession as it exists, but also forging new ground in combating workplace sexual violence in all its forms.

About Martin Sheard

Well-known, accomplished and results-oriented

Martin founded Inlet Law with a vision. We are never going to tell survivors of sexual violence and harassment in the workplace that nothing can be done.

And so far, he's making it work.

Martin has advocated in the courts of six provinces and one territory. He advocated successfully for the rights of marginalized Canadians in the Supreme Court of Canada in Matthews v Ocean Nutrition. He has lectured at law schools. He has been quoted in the news and educational materials on a wide array of employment law issues. He is a past president of the employment law subsection of the Canadian Bar Association.

If you want capable, fearless yet balanced advocacy, Martin is your guy.

If you want to pick a result and work toward it, if you want an advocate who really cares about your back story, your family, your problems... if you want results tailored to you call Martin or any member of our team.

About Tanvir Sanghera

Tenacious and strategic

Tanvir joined Inlet after practising commercial litigation for three years elsewhere. 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 vintage. She has appeared at every level of court in British Columbia, including recently winning at the B.C. Court of Appeal in the matter of E.N. v William L. Rutherford (B.C.) Limited.
