Licensing Management & Compliance
Licensing agreements between licensees and licensors are often complex and leave much open to interpretation. Licensors frequently must rely on licensees to accurately calculate the proper amount of license fees or royalties due. Periodic compliance reviews or audits can not only ensure that the appropriate licensing revenue is being received, but can also provide licensees with an incentive to apply diligence in reporting going forward.
Construction Audits & Disputes
Investing in a new facility for your organization can be a daunting task, especially when it is the first time your organization has embarked on a large scale capital project or it has been a while since doing so.
Forensic Insurance & Recovery
Major disasters do not occur frequently, and when they do, no one is every fully prepared. Organizations must act swiftly to assess damages and organize recovery efforts to minimize the disruption to their business and restore operations to the fullest extent possible.
