Murray started out in 1979 as Crown Counsel, prosecuting criminal cases in Vancouver trial courts. Murray then joined a large national law firm and became a partner in the labour department and a member of the Firm's executive committee.In 1992, Murray became a founding partner of the employment and labour law firm, Harris and Company, where he specialized in trial and appeal work, arbitration and mediation, in employment related disputes.

In the year 2000, with Dan Gleadle, he founded the law practice of TevlinGleadle, Employment Law Strategies. Focussing exclusively on legal and strategic issues arising out of the employment relationship, we advise executives and corporations on dispute resolution and negotiation strategy, relying upon years of experience in successful negotiated settlements, mediations and arbitrations.We pride ourselves on the ability to achieve outstanding practical results for our clients through planning and negotiation. Where necessary, however, all appropriate aspects of the litigation process before the Courts are engaged.

Murray has been successful counsel on many of the leading cases in British Columbia employment law, as well as several nationally significant cases. These cases are the tip of the iceberg however - most cases are successfully resolved through negotiation, well before any trial date. Murray is noted in the Lexpert Employment Law guide as consistently recommended by peers and clients, and is also recognized in the Legal Media Group - Guide to the World's Leading Labour and Employment Lawyers as a leader in Canada. When not lawyering or being a family man, Murray is an avid amateur musician, and thinks he is a beautiful singer. He also enjoys skiing, cycling, kayaking, running - in fact all forms of free transportation.
