CPS was established in New Zealand in July 2007 to meet a market need for sensible, structured investigations and handling of all types of casualty (liability) and financial lines (fidelity & professional indemnity), including major and complex loss, insurance claims in the New Zealand and Australasian markets.

Senior Liability Adjuster, Albert Stassen is a chartered loss adjuster and has been involved in loss adjusting in New Zealand since 2011 and has specialised in commercial property, commercial major loss, contract works and public and products liability claims.
