12 OK Stat § 12-1082 (2015) What's This?

(a) A partnership may sue and be sued in its firm name, and after a partnership has been dissolved, actions may be brought by and against the partnership in its firm name to enforce obligations that arose before the dissolution, the partnership being deemed to continue for the purpose of the suit. Where the dissolution is caused by the death of a partner, an action to enforce an obligation that arose before the dissolution may be brought by or against the partnership in its firm name, or by or against the surviving partners, or by or against the surviving partners and the estate of the deceased partner, if an action is brought against the partnership in its firm name, the estate of the deceased partner may be made a party to the action by being properly served with process.

(b) When a partner dies after suit is brought by or against a partnership, the action will not abate, whether it is brought by or against the partnership in its firm name or in the names of the partners and it shall not be necessary to make the representative of the deceased partner a party to the action although he may be substituted for the decedent if the decedent was named as a party plaintiff or was served with process, but judgment may not be enforced against the decedent's estate if the partner dies before the verdict was rendered and the decedent's representative was not made a party to the action.

(c) When a partner dies after judgment has been rendered in favor of or against the partnership of which the decedent was a member, the judgment may be enforced in favor of or against the partnership and against the estate of the deceased partner although the estate of the deceased partner is not made a party to the judgment.
