Relatedly, The National Law Journal featured Mr. Dell’Angelo in its profile of Berger Montague for a special annual report entitled “Plaintiffs’ Hot List.” The National Law Journal’s Hot List identifies the top plaintiff practices in the country. The Hot List profile focused on Mr. Dell’Angelo’s role in the MF Global litigation (In re MF Global Holding Ltd. Inv. Litig., No. 12-MD-2338-VM (S.D.N.Y.)). In MF Global, Mr. Dell’Angelo represented former commodity account holders seeking to recover approximately $1.6 billion of secured customer funds after the highly publicized collapse of MF Global, a major commodities brokerage. At the outset of this high-risk litigation, the odds appeared grim: MF Global had declared bankruptcy, leaving the corporate officers, a bank, and a commodity exchange as the only prospect for the recovery of class’s misappropriated funds. Nonetheless, four years later, a result few would have believed possible was achieved. Through a series of settlements, the former commodity account holders recovered more than 100 percent of their missing funds, totaling over $1.6 billion.

Mr. Dell’Angelo also serves as General Counsel to Berger Montague PC.
