I assure you as an insider working hand in hand with Robert Thorne and Greg Redlitz that they are deceptive, cunning, fast talking and absolutely have psychopathic tendency and intentions that are deceiving clients and celebrities.


I will offer just two examples:


1- They were pursuing Melissa McCarthy for licensing possibilities. She was not a client. I was hounded at all hours of the day and night by a what seemed to be cocaine infused Robert Thorne ranting that I must contact Macy's and Wal-Mart which I did successfully. I lined up numerous apparel companies, fragrance companies, home goods, etc. One New york Clothing Company was invited to Saturday Night Live by Melissa Agent when Melissa was hosting. Many times Robert stated, "You must find a clothing licensing deal or I will loose her. He promised me that I would be wealthy and justly compensated


I introduced the opportunity to Sunrise Brands and Macy's together. This resulted in a multi million dollar licensing deal.


2-I introduced a very affluent clothing company to Robert Thorne and Greg Redlitz that were bamboozled into a licensing deal well into the six figures. How were they bamboozled? I will tell you…I was instructed to convince the owners of the clothing company that Kevin Costner, Cheryl Crow, Courtney Cox, Jennifer Anderson and other A List Celebrities support the Brand and would make live appearances at the Trade shows! It was after the initial; introduction at Robert Thornes home with the owners that Robert Thorne flipped and went into a weird pacing back and forth chain smoking rant (after they left in his back yard) in front of my partner and myself on what he was going to do because the celebrities he had instructed me to push with the deal was a total lie!!!!!!!


Robert Thorne in his late 60’s married a 22-year-old girl cleaning lady from Medellin, Colombia. I truly believe that people like this who think they are above the law should be investigated.


There is no slander in the truth. I swear that I am not with vengeance. I must speak out to protect others from these despicable two attorneys that have deceived and hurt many people for the past 25 years.



About Licensing

Licensing is the permission to use well known imagery, such as film, cartoon characters, sports or corporate trade marks on consumer products or in sales promotions. Licensors are typically film companies, TV production companies or sporting bodies who own the rights to the property and licensees are the companies who want to use the trademarks or imagery in their promotions or on their products.

Benefits to the licensees include raised awareness of products and promotions, increased sales and revenue, expanded customer base and a competitive advantage against similar products in the market place.

Benefits to the licensor include increased character or brand exposure, additional revenue, a stronger negotiating position with third parties such as TV, video and theatrical distributors and protection of trademarks and brand standards.

Our aim is to extend properties into the complete range of consumer products and services - to the benefit of the licensor, the licensees and the consumer. The long-standing relationships we have with many of our clients is a testament to our client care and the priority given to every property no matter how big or small.

Principal Robert Thorne , self proclaimed architect who created and managed Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s acting career, fashion, beauty, home and entertainment brand at Wal-Mart globally with over $1 billion of annual global retail sales. Despite it all, the twins personal fortune was still enough to buy a small Caribbean nation. But instead they decided to use a part of their personal wealth to buy-out minority Dualstar shareholders Robert Thorne and Greg Redlitz (reportedly for their awful mismanagement of the duo over the previous five years).
