Sol Majteles

Sol Majteles is a partner in Lavan’s Property & Leasing team.

Sol has been in private legal practice for almost 50 years and has wide ranging experience in property, commercial and business transactions, corporate and board decision making and general commercial law and practice.

For more than 30 years he has also been a director of numerous private and ASX listed companies that have been engaged in a diverse range of projects, including the research and commercialisation of biotechnology, the acquisition and exploration of a prospect for oil and gas in the USA, gold, nickel and base metals exploration in various parts of Australia, uranium exploration in Namibia, a producing gold mine in Western Australia, an oil production project in eastern Indonesia and a coal production joint venture in Kalimantan, Indonesia. 

His involvement over many years with companies in a diverse range of enterprises has provided him with the experience to provide sensible, commercially astute input at Board level, which is important to enable proper evaluation and assessment of investment opportunities and the associated risks as well as in the negotiation and documentation of agreements relating to project acquisitions and any ongoing commercial contract issues. 

As part of his senior role within Lavan’s Asia Desk, he has also developed significant links with a number of high net worth investors and corporate fund managers in Asia.

Although having scaled back in recent years from full time legal practice, he remains an active partner with Lavan. His role has now become that of a trusted advisor to many clients and contacts developed over a lifetime of commercial practice. Sol now focuses on client relationship management, business development and mentoring many of the young lawyers in the firm.
