Paul D. Anderson

Associate Attorney
Paul Anderson is an accomplished litigator that helped pioneer the NFL and NCAA Concussion Litigation. He was previously an attorney for The Klamann Law Firm in Kansas City and was part of the team, along with attorneys from Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, which secured a landmark settlement for the family of Derek Sheely in a wrongful death brain injury lawsuit against the NCAA and other parties. Additionally, during the last five years, Paul and Kenneth McClain teamed up to recover millions of dollars for their retired NFL player clients.

Paul graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law in May 2012. While in law school, Paul created the nationally-acclaimed website, NFLConcussionLitigation.com. It became the “go-to source” for chronicling the litigation against the NFL and NCAA. Forbes.com described Paul as “one of the nation’s leading experts on concussion law.” The national media regularly seeks his insight, and he has been a panelist at multiple CLEs and sports law symposiums discussing the NFL and NCAA concussion litigation.

Beginning in 2015, Paul became an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law where he teaches a course entitled, “The Emergence and Transformation of Concussion Litigation.” Paul also currently serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Kansas where he teaches Sports Law.

Paul was named a “Rising Star” for 2018 by Super Lawyers.
