IAS Claim Services, an independent claims adjusting firm, has acquired California-based Jim Buckley & Associates of Anaheim.
The regional adjusting firm, which also operated under the name JBA Insurance Adjusters, has multiple office locations covering California, Arizona and Nevada.
The acquisition now gives IAS a footprint servicing more than one-third of the US population for day-to-day property and casualty claims and two-thirds of the US population for catastrophic claims.
According to IAS Claim, JBA Insurance Adjusters will begin operating as IAS Claims Services immediately.
As a part of this acquisition, Buckley will become a regional vice president of IAS Claim Services in charge of the Western US, who has lead IAS Claim Services’ large loss unit across the company.
IAS Claim Services CEO Larry Cochran said JBA’s professional culture and established footprint in the Western US make, which also provides great momentum to follow through on plans of being a national firm in the very near future.
