Dan N. Allmayer


Dan’s litigation practice is built on a foundation of aggressive and efficient advocacy. Clients – ranging from local businesses to Fortune 500 companies – rely on Dan to resolve conflicts at the jury trial, appellate and administrative agency levels. In addition to defense of substantial liability exposures, Dan helps companies resolve insurance coverage issues. He represents organizations arising out of issues concerning commercial general liability, commercial auto, directors’ and officers’ liability, workers’ compensation, product liability, property damage and cyber liability, among others.

Dan applies his knowledge and expertise to complex and high-stakes workers’ compensation litigation. In addition, he serves as counsel to four professional sports teams and has advised on claims involving stadium personnel, cheerleaders and the professional athletes themselves. For example, in 2018 Dan defended a major league sports team in a lawsuit brought by an injured All-Pro running back in jury trial, and, in a separate matter for the same team, obtained dismissal with prejudice on the merits in federal court.

Recognized by his peers as a Missouri/Kansas “Super Lawyer,” Dan is an experienced trial attorney who achieves results through trial, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation. Before attending law school, Dan served as an artillery officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.
