Can you help an inventor licensing an invention?

We have been approached by an inventor who is looking to find someone with experience of licensing their invention to a multinational company - if any of you would like to offer advice please contact us on in the first instance and we will pass on your contact details to the inventor:
"  I want to contact inventors who have licensed their own product to foreign multinationals, this type of person will know the questions to ask and those not to ask.  Also whether they sold their patents to their licensee or renewed the patents themselves, did their licensee pay on time, were they allowed to inspect the accounts etc? "
