Proven Proficiency

A Premier Claims Administration Firm built on Real Experience

History & Vision

Legion has been built to take the industry by storm and has its sights set on becoming the national leader in catastrophe claims administration for the insurance, environmental claims, and governmental recovery sectors. Standing on more than 50 years combined experience, Legion was conceived by Steve Brown and a team of industry professionals who saw the need for a new CAT adjusting company after witnessing the struggle within the industry in 2017 to find reliable claims resources following back-to-back major hurricanes in the southern United States. Agile and experienced, Legion pairs responsiveness, expertise, and the latest claims technology to provide clients with a partner that stands at the ready, prepared for the time when disaster or crisis inevitably will strike.
