Bryan Petkanics has more than 30 years of experience representing banks and financial institutions in private banking and complex commercial lending transactions. Solution-driven and pragmatic in his approach, he counsels clients on secured and unsecured lending, letters of credit, project finance and various other credit arrangements. 

In addition to advising many of the largest financial institutions in the United States, much of Bryan’s work involves foreign banks and offshore entities. 

Banks are facing increased competition from nontraditional lending sources. Now more than ever, I enjoy the opportunity to assist my clients — and their customers — in structuring creative transactions to achieve their goals.

Bryan’s practice includes financing structured around hedge fund interests, private equity interests, fine art, aircraft (including fractional interests), marketable securities, real property and other personal property. These transactions include representation of lenders and agent banks in syndicated and club deals. He also has significant experience in asset-based lending, derivatives, restructuring and loan workouts. 

In his spare time, Bryan enjoys traveling and bike touring with his family in locations around the world.
