I have always admired and followed Terri Janke and her work on intellectual property and the cultural rights of our mob in the arts sector. I had put off contacting a legal firm to assist me with the legalities surrounding my business needs as I was unsure if they would represent me appropriately. Terri and her legal firm are one that I trust completely and know that as an Indigenous person in business, I am looked after. Terri’s team are professional, prompt and easy to work with and listened genuinely to what my needs were and provided legal agreements that considered my rights and the rights of my clients as well.

DKA [Desert Knowledge Australia] works with the knowledges and knowledge-holders of the desert and we need to make sure we are correctly articulating and managing IP and ICIP rights.  Terri and her team patiently and expertly worked through the important complexities to create a strong, clear ICIP protocol for DKA and now we’re working together to develop our IP Management Plan. Thanks Terri and Anika!

Terri brings legal know-how, hands-on expertise and tremendous vitality to her work. I have worked with her for more than ten years on intellectual property and Indigenous and cultural property issues. She has authored a pioneering study for the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) on the use of IP systems by Indigenous communities (Minding Culture), and she is currently a consultant to WIPO in two significant capacity-building projects in the Pacific. Terri has a sharp legal mind and formidable people-skills – it’s always a pleasure working with her.

A huge THANK YOU to Clara Klemski (Senior Solicitor) and Laura Curtis (Solicitor) for your support and assistance during our prolonged negotiation of various IP, ICIP and moral rights clauses with an organisation. Your breaking down of complex information and guidance of what comes next in the drafting of the different clauses made for a much more simplified and streamlined process. It was most reassuring to have had you both provide us with professional advice as well as being a sounding board for our many concerns about the contract. We also thank you for the wisdom you provided to us regarding our next steps and wish you both continued success in your personal and professional endeavours.


Until next time, keep on leading with excellence.

Terri’s a personal hero and an inspiration to me ever since we met. Her personal values are reflected in her company, she’s a person with integrity and honesty who responds to any challenge placed upon her with vigour, hard work, determination and focus.
