The following example uses the LC task to compile licenses.

<Project xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/developer/msbuild/2003">
<!-- Item declarations, etc -->

    <Target Name="CompileLicenses">
        <LC
            Sources="@(LicxFile)"
            LicenseTarget="$(TargetFileName)"
            OutputDirectory="$(IntermediateOutputPath)"
            OutputLicenses="$(IntermediateOutputPath)$(TargetFileName).licenses"
            ReferencedAssemblies="@(ReferencePath);@(ReferenceDependencyPaths)">

            <Output
                TaskParameter="OutputLicenses"
                ItemName="CompiledLicenseFile"/>
