Praxis Claims Consulting
Praxis Claims Consulting was founded in 2006 by Brian D. Stiefel, CPCU to respond to the demand for quality, reliable and trustworthy claims consulting and auditing services.
Brian has extensive claims experience in the industry including managing of domestic insurance carrier claim, SIU and legal operations as well as oversight and management of several re-insured programs on behalf of Lloyd's Underwriters. He has been involved in traditional, alternative, and surplus lines markets, as well as captives, risk retention groups, program business, and self-insured arrangements for both U.S. based and London markets.
For the nine years prior to the creation of Praxis, Brian was employed by a premier London reinsurance intermediary and was charged with the oversight and management of claims generated from several programs written on U.S. domestic paper and reinsured through Lloyds.
In 2004, on behalf of his employer, Brian began to offer his claims consulting services to outside clients. Praxis was formed in 2006 to take on the existing clients of Brian's employer as offering claims consulting services was not in their long range corporate business plan.
Praxis continues to grow as the demand for quality consulting services exists and as the market becomes more aware of the services offered by Praxis.
Many of the Praxis staff have achieved insurance specific or legal designations and have dealt with all aspects and disciplines within the industry, thus allowing Praxis to approach its assignments with a balanced, learned and global approach.
