“It’s been a privilege working on this matter [against Danny] over the past 14 months and I’ve been so impressed with [his] advocacy.” Opposing Counsel, Partner at Am Law 200 firm

Danny Newman is a partner in Tonkon Torp’s Litigation Department, where he focuses his work in bankruptcy, reorganization, and insolvency and serves as Co-Chair of the Government Law & Disputes Practice Group. He has worked on the largest chapter 11 cases in the Pacific Northwest, represented debtors, receivers, and creditors of all kinds in state court litigation and out-of-court workouts, managed complex real estate and closely-held corporation disputes, and negotiated successful resolutions for challenges to ballot titles and investigations by various state agencies.

Danny joined Tonkon Torp after completing a clerkship with Judge Richard C. Tallman at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, focusing on the circuit’s civil appeals. Prior to that clerkship, Danny worked on large and complex bankruptcy cases, bet-the-company commercial and energy litigation, and government anti-corruption and bribery investigations in the Houston office of Paul Hastings LLP. In his first job out of law school, Danny served as a law clerk to Judge Xavier Rodriguez at the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in San Antonio, where he assisted with all aspects of civil litigation — from motions to dismiss through trial — as well as with criminal substantive motions and trials.

Danny teaches a negotiations class for Lewis & Clark Law School as an adjunct professor and previously co-taught negotiations seminars at Gonzaga Law and at South Texas College of Law Houston. He maintains an active pro bono practice, including forming and advising nonprofit clients, representing immigrants seeking asylum or special status, and pursuing civil rights claims.

Danny earned his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law in 2014, and graduated from Rice University in 2010 with a B.A. in Political Science and Public Policy, with a focus on American government and urban policy.

Outside of work, Danny enjoys grilling, sports, politics, international travel, exploring Portland’s restaurants and coffee shops, and hiking and relaxing everywhere from Oregon’s coast to Bend.

Representative Matters

Bankruptcy, Restructuring & Insolvency

  • Representing the Receiver in Cathay Bank v. Mark Hemstreet, et al., who controls several hotels with liabilities north of $100 million. In the most complex receivership in Oregon in recent memory, we have pushed through multiple hotel sales over the objection of the owner, and paid down tens of millions of secured, priority, and unsecured debt, with tens of millions more to go. We have faced numerous issues of first impression at both the trial and appellate court, prevailing at each stage and on each issue along the way.
  • Representing the Receiver in De Lage Lending v. Wagers Trailers Inc., who controls several local RV and trailer dealerships, with several million dollars in secured debt and several more in unpaid taxes and unpaid trust claims.
  • Represented the primary creditor in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy leading to dismissal of bankruptcy case.

Ad Hoc Committee representation involved around 30 individuals with eight-figures in claims against BlockFi; the Committee itself represented the interests of thousands of creditors with claims of approximately $1 billion against BlockFi. We were able to ensure that BlockFi’s counterclaims against the Loan Account Holders were setoff against the Loan Account Holders’ own claims, saving Loan Account Holders hundreds of millions of dollars – compared to the Debtors’ original draft plan – and years of potential litigation defense costs.
  • Represented NORPAC Foods, Inc. and its affiliates as debtors in their Chapter 11 cases.
  • Represented majority shareholder in Easterday Ranches, Inc. and its affiliates in those Chapter 11 cases.
  • Represented real estate debtor in successfully defeating lender’s emergency receivership motion and negotiating settlement agreement.

  • Represented Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico on a variety of issues, including, most notably, the restructuring of the Government Development Bank for Puerto Rico.

  • Tonkon represented NORPAC Foods, Inc. and its affiliates as debtors-in-possession in their chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. The case included two major asset sales, the first of which caused the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division to withhold approval and investigate potential anticompetitive impacts and other antitrust violations. Tonkon worked with the DOJ through its investigation by submitting voluntary document productions, offering key witnesses for interviews, and submitting white papers on various legal issues. The DOJ eventually closed its investigation without taking any action and the sale proceeded without incident.

Victory for Eastern Oregon City in Strategic Investment Program Agreement Payment Dispute

Tonkon Torp represented a city in Eastern Oregon in a dispute with its county over payments from a major data center developer who developed several data centers in both the City and the County. The developer, the City, and the County are parties to a Strategic Investment Program Agreement, sponsored by the State of Oregon, which required the developer to make annual payments in lieu of property taxes. Tonkon helped the City resolve that dispute in a pre-litigation settlement with the County that will give the City at least $5 million more over the term of the Agreement than the County was previously willing to provide. 

Successful Ballot Challenge at Oregon Supreme Court

Represented Associated General Contractors in a ballot challenge for Initiative Petition 41 (IP 41). Following successful modifications requested in a comment letter submitted to the Attorney General (AG) for draft ballot title for IP 41, Tonkon Torp petitioned the Oregon Supreme Court for further refinement. The Court was persuaded by Tonkon Torp’s arguments and referred the ballot title back to the AG’s office, which made the required modifications.

Local Short Term Rental Policy Work

Our team has been engaged in high profile short-term rental (STR) policy disputes from the Oregon Coast, to the Gorge, to Central Oregon. We have developed a deep understanding of the state and local laws and procedures, as well as the political calculations and challenges, which drive the issues and have made them so difficult in recent years. We represent advocacy groups seeking to protect their property rights to operate STRs by using a multi-disciplinary, collaborative approach to first try to influence the public, policymakers, and staff to limit their overreaching restrictions. If that does not fully succeed, we use our extensive experience to litigate land-use and government law issues in state and federal courts, or in front of the Land Use Board of Appeals. We have a track record of targeted, efficient success helping these groups achieve what they ultimately want: long-term preservation of their right to operate an STR, or sell their property to someone who does.

Complete Victory for Local Politician before Oregon Government Ethics Commission

In a high-profile matter with extensive coverage by the Oregonian, Tonkon Torp represents four politicians from Eastern Oregon accused of breaching their ethics obligations related to a company they own and its dealings with a Fortune 10 company who did business in their county. Tonkon managed the investigation and negotiated with OGEC staff for months and eventually fought staff recommendations for one of the clients, where the Commission overruled staff and determined that he had not broken any state laws or regulations. The investigation for the other three clients is ongoing.

Navigating the Oregon Health Authority Merger Approval Process

Tonkon Torp has successfully represented multiple insurance companies and healthcare providers in connection with their mergers or acquisitions of other health organizations, which now must be approved by the Oregon Health Authority. All Tonkon clients to date have achieved approval from the OHA without concession or delay of their transaction.

Federal Trade Commission Antitrust CIDs

Tonkon Torp has represented clients who have received civil investigative demands from the Federal Trade Commission and/or the Oregon Department of Justice in connection with some of the largest and highest profile antitrust cases in recent memory, including several Big Tech firms and large agricultural and food processors. We work with the agency to narrow the scope of their requests and deliver timely and efficient responses that get them the information they actually need with as little cost and aggravation as possible for the client.

Tonkon Torp Successfully Represents Ad Hoc Committee of Loan Claimants in BlockFi Chapter 11 Cases

Tonkon Torp U.S. Bankruptcy Court Trial Victory for NORPAC Foods Affirmed by U.S. District Court

The Tonkon Torp-led NORPAC Foods Inc. nine-figure bankruptcy cases had a notable outcome – unsecured creditors received distributions significantly above the amounts projected at the outset of the chapter 11 cases (approaching 39% as opposed to below 10%, or even 0% as the bank argued). Once NORPAC’s chapter 11 plan was confirmed on November 30, 2020, Tonkon Torp’s bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys began their work with SierraConstellation Partners, LLC, NORPAC’s financial adviser and chapter 11 Plan Agent, to reconcile over $200 million in claims and conclude the bankruptcy plan.

Danny Newman Helps Texas Neighborhood Remove Unconstitutional and Racist Language from Deeds

Many aspects of systemic racial injustice in America were given new scrutiny in the immediate aftermath of George Floyd’s death in 2020. In Houston’s St. Stevens United Methodist Church parish, Reverend Nathan Lonsdale Bledsoe pointed out in a sermon that blatantly racist deed restrictions still exist for many Texas neighborhoods including his own in Northwest Houston: “None of the lots… shall be used, owned or occupied by any person other than of the Caucasian Race.”

The Ramos Project

In April 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down non-unanimous jury convictions in criminal cases in Ramos v. Louisiana. A shameful carryover from the Jim Crow era, Louisiana and Oregon were the last two states that allowed non-unanimous criminal convictions when as many as two jurors believed a defendant was innocent. Overnight, more than 260 cases in Oregon became eligible to seek post-conviction relief for unconstitutional non-unanimous convictions. Housed in the Criminal Justice Reform Clinic (CJRC) at Lewis & Clark Law School, the Ramos Project is a statewide pro-bono initiative providing legal assistance to those seeking redress.

Distressed Cannabis Companies Find Hope with New Bankruptcy Ruling, Potential Substance Rescheduling

By Ferdinand Ruplin and Danny Newman – A recent court decision shows an evolving stance toward cannabis companies facing financial distress and seeking bankruptcy protection. Taken together with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommending that cannabis be rescheduled to Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act, there is hope that cannabis companies will have the ability to take advantage of federal bankruptcy protection in the near future.

Uncertainty in Oregon for Crypto Assets Under Commercial Law

By Danny Newman and Michael Fletcher – While some states have moved to adopt model Uniform Commercial Code provisions to provide a clear legal framework for commercial and secured transactions involving crypto assets, Oregon has yet to take action. This is a source of significant uncertainty in Oregon law for transactions with digital assets like cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and in bankruptcy cases trying to determine the status and priority of creditors where Oregon law applies.

The Eighth Circuit’s Topp Decision Adds Flexibility to Cramdown Interest Rate Calculations

By Danny Newman – The Eighth Circuit recently weighed in on the issue of how to determine appropriate cramdown interest rates for secured creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy plans under Section 1129 of the Bankruptcy Code. In In re Topp, the court ruled that the Treasury bill rate, not necessarily prime, can serve as the starting point in applying the “formula approach” first outlined by the Supreme Court in Till v. SCS Credit Corp. for Chapter 13 bankruptcies.

Bankruptcy Doors Open a Little Wider to Cannabis Companies

By Danny Newman, Ferdie Ruplin, Jessica Morgan, and Ava Schoen – In January, a California bankruptcy court issued an opinion providing another lifeline to cannabis companies that could benefit from the protection of the federal bankruptcy code – to reorganize or liquidate assets.

Who Owns Custodied Crypto Assets? New Bankruptcy Ruling Amplifies Concerns for Account Owners

By Danny Newman – As we first warned last summer, crypto property held in a custodian-controlled account could become the property of that custodian in the case of a bankruptcy filing. At the time, we recommended that crypto investors avoid this possibility by self-storing their assets in either a “cold” or “hot” wallet. We urgently reiterate that suggestion now. On January 4, 2023, our concerns were confirmed.
