Licensing management services

Over the life of a licensing agreement, the revenue leakage that results can amount to hundreds of thousands or, in some cases, millions of dollars in lost income for licensors. Therefore, our royalty examinations tend to be self-financing exercises as well as best business practice.

Our expertise is highly valued in many industries, including software/technology, entertainment, media and publishing and others.

While we work primarily with licensors, we also assist licensees by reviewing royalty agreements, ensuring compliance and, if necessary, resolving disputes.
