Royalty Contract Reviews
Identify unpaid royalties and manage royalty streams through a thorough royalty contract review.
Signing a royalty agreement is usually a welcome event. But after time, doubt can creep in. Are you actually receiving the money that's due you? How much should be coming in, and why are the checks arriving late or getting smaller? If you have nagging questions about your royalties, it may be time for a royalty contract review.
During the royalty contract review process, our professionals examine your royalty contract to determine whether you are being underpaid. Common underpayment causes include clerical errors, misinterpretations of the license agreement language, or intentional understatements. Once a contract has been reviewed, we can assist you in implementing a compliance monitoring program with red flags to notify you when there's a substantial deviation.
The rewards of accurate royalty contract reviews can be great
In the past 10 years, we've used a tailored royalty contract review process to help licensors of intellectual property, copyrights or trademarks identify millions of dollars in unpaid royalties. We've conducted royalty reviews on everything from software to barbeque sauce and stem cell technology. Typically, the rewards exceed the review costs and, in many cases, the burden of the review cost can be shifted to the licensee.
Conducting a royalty review is simply good business practice. With years of experience and resources worldwide, why go anywhere else? Call RSM for a royalty contract review.
