Historic Namatjira copyright matter
One such matter was the historic return of the copyright into the lifetime works of Australia’s most iconic Aboriginal artist, Albert Namatjira, back to his family. 34 years after the Northern Territory Government sold the copyright into the works, a Deed was executed on 13 October 2017 assigning the copyright to our clients, the Namatjira Legacy Trust. Partners Zaven Mardirossian and Peter Seidel, and lawyer Gabriel Sakkel worked alongside senior partner, Mark Leibler to achieve the ground breaking outcome.
