Anthony May was selected to the prestigious 2023 Lawdragon 500 Leading Civil Rights & Plaintiff Employment Lawyers guide.

Congratulations to attorney Anthony May on being selected to the Lawdragon 500 Leading Civil Rights & Plaintiff Employment Lawyers guide for 2023 in recognition of his exemplary work in the “Civil Rights & Workers’ Rights, including Disability, LGBTQ+” categories.

The guide – which selects attorneys through a process of combining independent journalistic research, vetting with peers and adversaries, and a robust submission process – identifies top lawyers across the nation who are dedicated to standing up for employees who are denied equal treatment, fired, harassed, or marginalized by their employers. Those chosen have also represented clients who have been subjected to mistreatment by law enforcement or those in positions of authority and have been sexually abused and violated by those in positions of responsibility.

Anthony represents clients in a variety of complex litigation matters involving artificial intelligence in employment discrimination, disability rights, 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 May, AssociateAnthony has recently earned some of the legal industry’s top accolades. He was selected to Lawdragon’s inaugural 500 X – The Next Generation guide for 2023 and 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. In July, Anthony – considered an authority in the growing intersection of AI and employment discrimination law – presented on the potential discriminatory impacts of using AI in the workplace at the 2023 Maryland State Bar Association Legal Summit. Learn more about Anthony here.
