Hillen, Wicker & Tapscott, P.A.


Practice Areas


ERISA stands for the Employment Retirement Income Security Act under which businesses provide a range of benefits to employees.

Hillen, Wicker & Tapscott has advised and represented employers in defending ERISA claims and has assisted claimants in pursuing claims when necessary.  Because of the constraints on ERISA litigation, it is not uncommon for parties to reach an early resolution via settlement or alternative dispute resolution.

Sometimes benefits give rise to subrogation claims by an ERISA plan resulting from the payment of benefits to employees who incur injuries as a consequence of fault on the part of a third party.  Hillen, Wicker & Tapscott provides services in pursuing such subrogation claims by ERISA plans throughout the State of Mississippi in both state and federal courts.

In addition to more than twenty years’ experience in litigating ERISA subrogation claims, we offer advice to businesses in connection with establishing and documenting ERISA plans.
