Rhett Silverstein

Hello and thank you for your interest in Hegemon. Please allow me to introduce myself, the agency and our mission.

By way of background, I am a NY-trained attorney and have always had an affinity for intellectual property and the power of branding. This led me to senior positions at global agencies representing an array of brands, celebrities, athletes and events. During this phase of my career, I spent my days pitching countless manufacturers on the value of licensing my clients’ brand-name for use on their products. In these encounters, I noticed the absence of my agency counterpart on the other side of the negotiating table. The manufacturers didn’t have representation and were making uninformed decisions. I felt a bit like the fox in the hen house. This pattern repeated too many times to ignore…

So I founded Hegemon on a mission to level the playing field for manufacturers seeking to license or acquire intellectual property. My goal was to create an agency with a singular focus on what’s best for the manufacturer. No half measures. As a result, we have been privileged to represent some of the finest manufacturers in seminal deals within their respective industries. For some examples, please see our ‘Recent Work’ page.

Whether you’re interested in our services or partnering with one of our clients, I look forward to personally seeing how I can help grow your business.
