Legal Talk & Tech

Venture X

Are you interested in learning more about the legal side of owning your own business, or of just navigating your way through legal documentation? This meetup is going to go through some of the basics of going freelance, of learning to decipher contracts, and more importantly learning the common legal language that we always hear, but might now necessarily know. RSVP on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/legal-talk-tech-tickets-75968894007 Ryan G. Reiffert is a business attorney and a San Antonio native (Reagan High School). He has been practicing law since 2011, with a focus on business law. Mr. Reiffert began his career at the NYC headquarters of Greenberg Traurig focusing on public and private Mergers & Acquisitions, project finance, financial advisory representation, and SEC compliance, then a few years later felt the itch to move back to Texas and accepted a position in the Houston office of Latham & Watkins (ranked #5 law firm globally by Vault) with a focus on Capital Markets, including representing issuers & underwriters in several Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), as well as a continuing emphasis on Mergers & Acquisitions and SEC compliance. After another couple of years, he moved back home to San Antonio, where after a brief stint in a local boutique law firm, he became General Counsel of WGVS, a San Antonio technology startup that has raised over $8 million in funding. He earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin’s Plan II Honors Program and his Juris Doctor from NYU School of Law.
