Thompson Burton PLLC partner Kevin Thompson was recently quoted by the New York Post in an article titled “Verve Energy Drink Company Tries to Stay Off Regulators’ radar.” The article describes Kevin as an “industry insider” and quotes him as stating that reduced purchase requirements by the MLM industry would “fix a lot of issues. He states that “What happens is a lot of people buy stuff they never would buy in quantities, they would never have purchased just to qualify for bonuses.” Thompson admitted the change could make it difficult for some MLM companies to survive.
Thompson Burton PLLC is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Grassland Brewers this season. The Brewers are part of the Grassland Athletic Association (7-8 year olds). George Simms (pictured with TB logo on sleeve), son of firm partner JK Simms, is a fantastic baseball player and started the season with an RBI Triple. Cole Dowsley commented “we’re very proud to be sponsoring future baseball all-star George Simms. He’s always been a great athlete.”
