MF Global Creditors to Form Committee, Seek Recoveries

MF Global Holdings Ltd. creditors looking to recover from the eighth largest bankruptcy in U.S. history may sue the company’s advisers, search for assets overseas and seek information from a probe into the commingling of customer accounts at the brokerage, a bankruptcy lawyer said.

Creditors seeking a position on a committee that could shape the approach to recoveries met today at the Millennium Hilton hotel at 55 Church Street in Manhattan. A trustee overseeing the liquidation of the company’s operating unit, MF Global Inc., started his investigation into possible fraud or misconduct on Nov. 4. The FBI has also started a probe, according to a person familiar with the matter. MF Global has until Jan. 30 to report a detailed list of its assets and debt.
