One of the largest worldwide professional groups specializing in royalty compliance.
The Royalty Compliance Organization is an association of professional firms dedicated to providing our clients with solutions to royalty compliance and collection issues by performing royalty compliance audits, recording and copyright valuations, licensing and profit participation engagements and such ancillary services as financial due diligence in connection with sales and acquisitions, litigation support, and other related client needs.
RCO has one of the largest compliance examination practices in the entertainment, intellectual property and intangible asset fields around the world with affiliates in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, St. Louis and London. For over forty-six years, our management and staff have performed engagements throughout the world on behalf of licensors, artists, writers and other profit participants. Our experience includes thousands of engagements for compliance examination services resulting in additional benefits for our clients from 10% to 50% or more of the amount previously reported.
Capitalizing on our versatility developed from the common aspects of compliance auditing, we expanded rapidly from music into merchandising, music publishing, motion picture, video, television, book publishing, brand licensing, sports licensing, computer software, and providing compliance services to licensors of commercial rights and trademarks. Our experience in this area extends to applying certain procedures at software distributors, book publishers, and toy, apparel, and game manufacturers. In more recent years, as the industry became acquisition minded, we broadened our services to include the areas of financial due diligence and asset valuations. Additionally, we provide forensic accounting and litigation support services.
