Attorney Anthony May has been selected to the 2023 inaugural Lawdragon 500 X – The Next Generation guide in the civil rights, commercial litigation, and appellate law categories. He was selected out of thousands of submissions as an attorney who will define the direction of the legal profession in the United States.
Anthony represents clients in a variety of complex litigation matters including artificial intelligence, disability rights, representing individuals who have been wrongfully convicted, commercial litigation disputes, and fighting workplace discrimination. During his time at BGL, Anthony has worked on a number of high-impact cases. In Doe v. Catholic Relief Services, he helped obtain a federal district court victory on behalf of a married gay employee who challenged CRS’s withdrawal of dependent health insurance benefits for his husband under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Federal Equal Pay Act. On June 2, he argued before the Maryland Supreme Court that the Maryland Equal Pay Act and the Maryland Fair Employment Practices Act are intended to include sexual orientation and that religious organizations are not exempted from that requirement unless the role is ministerial.
Anthony’s tireless pursuit of justice has earned him recognition from some of the legal industry’s most prominent organizations. In addition to Lawdragon, he has been named to Super Lawyers’ Maryland Rising Star list for four years in a row, as well as The Best Lawyers in America: Ones to Watch list for appellate practice, civil rights law, and commercial litigation for 2022 and 2023. Anthony was recently named to Disability Rights Maryland’s 2021-2022 Pro Bono Honor Roll in recognition for his exceptional pro bono work. In 2022, he received the Maryland Legal Services Corporation Rising Star Award for his outstanding pro bono work. Learn more about Anthony here.
