San Antonio Outside General Counsel

Many businesspeople appreciate having an experienced lawyer on “speed dial” when legal matters arise. For large corporations or well-funded startups, this may mean an in-house attorney or General Counsel. However, this is not always a cost-effective option for a small business.

It is especially true in law that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A short conversation with an experienced attorney can often defuse an incipient legal issue – with minimal hassle – before it becomes a major problem.

Get in touch

This is where I come in. My name is Ryan Reiffert, and I bring several years of experience as an in-house General Counsel to the table. Sometimes a quasi-academic twenty-page memo delivered three weeks from now is appropriate. Sometimes, it is not. When you need cost-effective, bottom-line legal guidance, on a time crunch, I can deliver. I get it.

Many times, the issue you’re calling about is something I can handle myself very quickly and easily, or something that can be addressed with a simple preventative measure on your end. Other times, it is not such an easy issue and alternatives will need to be discussed – but those discussions are almost always much easier in advance.

As an added “bonus” – when you return to me with multiple legal issues, we don’t have to spend time (or money) going through the basics. I have already asked you the introductory questions and I am already familiar with your business and operations. I hit the ground running.

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).
