Our History

PIERCE COUCH HENDRICKSON BAYSINGER & GREEN, LLP
-- AN ENDURING CIVIL PRACTICE -


Originally founded in 1923 as a two-man partnership, Pierce Couch Hendrickson Baysinger & Green has grown to employ 40+ attorneys, with offices located in Oklahoma City at the Clayton B. Pierce memorial building, and The Sun Building in Tulsa. Pierce Couch certainly is one of the oldest and most respected insurance defense and corporate law firms in Oklahoma. In keeping up with the ever-changing legal environment when other firms have crumbled, Pierce Couch has never wavered from its core principles of client service and satisfaction.

With a majority of its members being recognized as "AV Preeminent" counsel, or "Super Lawyers" by their peers, Pierce Couch represents a diverse clientele - from insurance companies and their insureds too numerous to name, to governmental employees, subdivisions and agencies, professionals of all stripes, manufacturers, employers, businesses, and individuals in need of pro bono service. Representing its clients with superior dedication, Pierce Couch has tried and argued cases in all of Oklahoma's 77 counties, the three Federal District courts, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, the U.S. Supreme Court, and courts in numerous other states. However, Pierce Couch lawyers realize the most valuable venue for clients is often the pre-litigation meeting room, where every effort is made to resolve disputes early and efficiently.

Pierce Couch's attorneys have come to its ranks from a wide variety of backgrounds, including graduates of prominent law schools, the US Attorney's Office, the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office, and several District Attorneys' offices. Pierce Couch's leaders often can be found in the ranks of the American and Oklahoma Bar Associations as well as state and national defense bar organizations, but most enjoy being found in our own legal community where we contribute to Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, the United Way, Catholic Charities, and several other entities.
