David Topp was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland in January 2002, then during February 2006 began a generalist practice at the Queensland Bar before gradually transforming over the years into a full time wills, estates & family provision litigation specialist.
David also possesses a sideline practice interest in costs assessing, including being named on the Supreme Court of Qld’s Register of Approved Cost Assessors.
In addition David is a published author (Tennyson Breach on the twin themes of property law and the 2011 Brisbane floods); and two separate legal texts, Security for Costs in the State of Queensland and Security for Costs in New South Wales.
In 2015 David wrote a political article analysing the seat pendency risk facing then Qld Premier Campbell Newman. Entitled ‘Losing Campbell Newman: The LNP’s risky Ashgrove Strategy’, David’s assessment was prophetic, as not only did Newman lose his seat, his LNP has never won that seat, now named Cooper, ever since, nor has ever been returned to government in Qld either.
