Commercial Law and Banking

For thirty years, Carlile Patchen & Murphy has led the field of commercial law, with particular expertise in financial transactions. With prompt service and creative problem solving, we have represented nearly every major financial institution in Columbus, as well as out-of-state lenders. We also represent borrowers, brokers and parties supplying credit enhancement in connection with financings of all sizes, as well as parties acquiring financial institutions. We regularly counsel financial institutions on operational matters including regulatory compliance, powers of attorney, trust accounts, vendor and joint venture relationships.

Our commercial practice includes corporate financings, asset-based lending, lease financings, leverage buyouts, mortgage and construction financings, investor note financings and term and revolving credits. Our services do not end at the closing. When a client develops financial difficulties, we work closely with all concerned to develop a solution. We have successfully represented borrowers, lenders and other interested parties in a broad range of workout situations, from refinancings and reorganizations to bankruptcies, liquidations and foreclosures.
