Indigenous Business and the Law

It’s exciting to start your own business and to be your own boss. There are a lot of great opportunities that come along with having a business, but there are also responsibilities. Terri Janke has written a guide for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have a business idea and are looking to start up in business, and those that are already in business.

 

Terri Janke and Company has recently published an easy to read guide for Indigenous business about the legal issues that they will encounter in business. Terri Janke has over 17 years experience as a solicitor, and 13 years experience as a business woman. The content of the guide is based on the most asked questions from the many Indigenous businesses she has helped over the years. Issues from choosing a business name, registering a trade mark, leases and employing staff are all covered in the guide. There are case studies and some useful checklists that will assist Indigenous business navigate through the legal obligations of business management.
