David Peinsipp and the World of Travel

A few years ago, struck by the travel bug, David packed his bags and went on an adventure he would never forget. From Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro to Mexico and the Caribbean, David’s trip to Latin America secured memories to last a lifetime.

After graduating with a Bachelor’s of science in Psychology from the University of Florida, David enrolled in law school at New York University School of Law. NYU Law School is the oldest school of law in the city, ranking number 4 out of 144 accredited universities in the United States. In 2001, David earned his JD. Since, he has worked tirelessly to become an accomplished law firm partner specializing in tech and corporate law. He represents investment banks, venture capitalists, and financial institutions in a variety of equity, debt, and equity-linked transactions including: public offerings, private placements, PIPES and mergers. In 2010, David seized the opportunity to experience life in Buenos Aires.


Buenos Aires, or “Fair Winds”, is the capital of and largest city in Argentina. Located on the western shore of Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires is known for its majestic views, vibrant city life, and rich history. In 2012, it ranked81st on the world life quality index, and one of the overall best in Latin America; per capita income is the third highest in the region. David was fortunate enough to see some of Buenos Aires best spots including Plaza de Mayo, Plaza de San Martin, and La Boca. Featuring amazing architecture and traditional local food, La Boca presents some of the very best Argentina has to offer. David was also able to catch Fuerza Bruta (Brute Force), a theater performance originating in Buenos Aires in 2005 by Diqui James. Fuerza Bruta has made its way around the world, attracting a diverse audience of celebrities, theatre enthusiasts, and first-timers.

David Peinsipp’s South American exploration extended to Rio de Janeiro, a city buzzing with life, saturated in cultural traditions. From the unique food to the spectacular views jovial people, David distinctly remembers Rio being unlike anywhere else. The residual bossa nova style of the 1950 and 1960s intermingled with the Rio of today, creating a current, yet historical atmosphere. Hiking in the Tijuca rainforest, visiting Santa Teresa, and strolling around Lapa were some of the few delights David had the opportunity to indulge in. If he could go back, he would love to visit Brazil again.

Currently, David is fully occupied with his position at the Cooley LLP firm, an international firm based in the United States, the United Kingdom, and China. Cooley LLP’s specialties include technology, life sciences, real estate, financial services, retail, and energy.

He looks forward to the opportunity to travel again.
