Foundation in Excellence
Gerard Maye founded the firm in 1995, with an ethos to provide a personable and honest service. From an early stage it gained an enviable reputation for quality criminal defence work throughout Sussex, including high profile national and international fraud and money laundering cases, drug importation and historic sex allegations.
Gerard Maye Legal became one of the few firms in Sussex to be part of the Serious Fraud Panel (now the Very High Costs (Crime) Case Scheme).
The practice is recognised as a leading firm with a Band 1 ranking in prestigious Legal publication, Chambers and Partners. In addition, we are the only firm in Brighton and Hove to be recognised as a leading firm within Legal 500, which provides the most comprehensive worldwide coverage on recommended law firms and lawyers.
