Attorney Ryan Reiffert

Although I Have Been Trained At Some Of The Largest Law Firms In The World, I Am An Entrepreneur At Heart.

That’s why I’m passionate about representing businesses, investors, and other entrepreneurs through the full range of legal and business issues from entity formation, capital raising, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and exit. I also assist those same businesses, investors, entrepreneurs, families, and individuals with other related legal needs, such as estate planning, wills, trusts, probate, asset protection, real estate, and much more.
When you call my firm, you will speak to me.
Personal attention has no substitute. You won’t be handed off to an army of junior associates or sent through a switchboard. I will bring my attention and my expertise to your legal issues, whether they are corporate, transactional, small business, estate planning, startup, or other issues.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
As in-house counsel in a startup, I was often consulted on small issues before they became large issues. I am happy to offer non-billable hour based fee models (such as subscription or flat-fee) to help meet your needs on time and on budget.

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity

After growing up in San Antonio (Reagan High School), Ryan attended UT Austin where he enrolled in the legendary Plan II Honors program. While at UT (during the Mack Brown golden years with Vince Young and Colt McCoy), he contracted a lifelong “bug” for Longhorn football.

He went on to obtain his J.D. at NYU, one of the very best law schools in the country.

As a young lawyer, Ryan spent several years as an associate in the corporate departments of two highly-prestigious global mega-firms (top 5 & top 50), where he learned about the “art of the deal” and worked on transactions ranging from small contracts to multi-billion dollar acquisitions. Ryan has also served as General Counsel of a San Antonio-based tech startup founded by two highly successful entrepreneurs which raised over $10 million in private funding.

Ryan also regularly trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at a local gym. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, descended from Judo, that focuses on ground fighting and the use of superior position to submit an opponent. The “gentle art,” as it is called, is not only a rapidly growing sport but also generally known as the most effective martial art in existence, ever since its practitioners dominated early mixed martial arts tournaments such as UFC. If you have ever watched a UFC fight or listened to the Joe Rogan podcast, you have likely seen or heard about the otherworldly effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques. You can find Ryan on the mats several times per week, most weeks. Oss!

He is also currently enrolled in the training course to be certified as a Texas Master Naturalist.

Ryan also volunteers his time as a teacher and mentor with various small business incubators, startup accelerators, and co-working spaces in San Antonio, where he provides guidance to entrepreneurs and small businesses both in the tech sector and beyond. From time to time, he also teaches workshops and classes with various universities and community colleges around the state, including as part-time faculty of the Alamo Community College District. He is an involved participant in various charitable organizations and activities.

He is a member of the San Antonio Texas Exes (UT Alumni Association), the San Antonio Bar Association, the San Antonio Young Lawyers Association, the Exit Planning Exchange (XPX), and others. In addition, Ryan has been selected as a member of the Texas Bar College, a distinction held by less than 5% of Texas lawyers.

Why Choose Ryan As Your Business Attorney


Excellent Track Record

If you are a startup navigating legal waters for the first time or a small business… If you are an established business looking for a high-quality corporate lawyer… If you are an individual seeking to protect yourself…

If this is “not your first rodeo” and you don’t need hand-holding, you just need a seasoned deal-closer… If your family business is looking for guidance on how to expand or break new ground…


Fee Transparency

Legal work can be expensive, and nobody likes a surprise bill. Having been in-house General Counsel, I have been in that boat, too. I can’t cover all your legal needs for free, but I can help you think about which expenses make sense and which expenses don’t… before we start the clock.

Unlike some of the larger and older law firms, I can also help with some unique and tailored alternative fee arrangements.


Personal Attention

My philosophy is simple. I believe that when you hire an attorney, that attorney should handle your issue.

Therefore, when you hire me, I will handle your issue. When you call my office, you will talk to me (unless I am meeting with another client). When you have questions, I will be the one answering them (if I can).
