Mr. Levy’s practice at one time consisted almost exclusively of litigation in the record industry.  It has since branched out to general commercial litigation, while retaining an emphasis on all facets of the entertainment business, including both litigation and transactional work. His clients include recording artists, television and film stars and athletes. The breadth of his client base, coupled with his litigation skills and expertise in copyright and trademark matters, provide a unique combination of practical and theoretical knowledge which have been applied to a wide range of matters.

His reported litigations include seminal cases on publicity rights, Groucho Marx Productions v. Day and Night Company, Inc., 689 F.2d 317 (2d Cir. 1982),  the digital distribution of recordings rights, Reinhardt v. Wal-mart Stores, 547 F. Supp 2d 346 (S.D.N.Y.2008) and the termination of copyright assignments, Scorpio Music v. Willis, (series of cases beginning in 2012 and pending appeal)(S.D. Ca.)
