General commercial litigation matters, breach of contract, intellectual property matters, unfair competition, trademark and copyright infringement. We are experienced in all aspects of litigation from case intake to full trial. My experience as a business owner gives Clients an extra edge.

I also have experience in all aspects of the Television, Music and Film Industry. We represent both large and small, Record, Production, Publishing Company’s as well as individual Artists and Producers.

I began my career with the Litigation Firm of Weiner & Millo. While an associate at that Firm, while handling a full litigation case load, I began representing Clients in the music industry and in 1993 Co-founded the Electronic Dance Label, Liquid Sky Music. Liquid Sky, which gained critical acclaim and underground success in the 1990’s, released 27 full length CD’s and over 100 Vinyl Records, distributed by Caroline Distribution/EMI, in just over six years.

In 1996, I left Weiner & Millo to start his own firm, Gary Adelman, Esq., which then became Adelman & Lavaia, LLC.

After leaving my management role with Liquid Sky in 1999, in March 2000, I co-founded, Downloadcard, Inc. an award winning technology firm, whose Clients include, BMG/SONY, Warner Music, EMI/Capitol, Comedy Central, Pantene Pro-Voice, Disney and Brisk Tea to name a few. Downloadcard’s innovative PIN Code technology is the basis and sometimes the backbone for the recent wave of digital download giveaway marketing programs such as Pepsi/iTunes, Burger King/AOL Music, Heinken and FYE music’s. In 2003, Pantene Pro-Voices’ marketing campaign, “Celebrating what women have to say”, used Downloadcard’s PIN/Code technology, and was honored by Marketing Magazines as one of the top 10 innovative marketing campaigns of the year.

I am a frequent speaker at national and company sponsored conferences and advises various Company’s on the topics of digital downloading, music law and internet marketing.

I received my Law degree from Hofstra University in 1991 and his undergraduate degree from Syracuse University in 1988. He is admitted to the Connecticut and New York bars and has been admitted to the Southern and Eastern Federal District Courts of New York and the District Court of Connecticut.
