Hi! Is there anyone who has already received a request to return the funds from FTX (I know they started to send it out already), and who has already e.g. tried to find a US lawyer? Or is there some "support group" where we could share references and tips (or even a lawyer)? Thanks a lot!

There's a slack workspace for grantees who wanted to band together to understand how to deal with this. But we haven't been able to make any progress really. I don't know if I can write publicly who manages the workspace, so maybe try emailing Chana Messinger from the CH team at chana.messinger@centreforeffectivealtruism.org

Thanks a lot! Could I get an invite or join? I hope I can contribute, as it became a thing for one of our org.

I actually wrote to Chana already, but she responded that she doesn't manage the group and doesn't know who does nor what the group's rules are. Seems hard to get in.

I just sent a message to the admin linking here.
Thanks! Will wait.

For others - no one has invited me to the group yet. Anyway, AFAIK the Slack group is basically dead and there are no useful messages as the workspace is on a free Slack plan with its only 90 days of message retention. I am somewhat surprised and disappointed we are not able to coordinate on this better 😁...

I contacted about 20 lawyers from the OP's Lawyers reference list, but only 4 got back to me. I talked to them and think I have some relevant info, and we are going to proceed with one of them. I have talked to some other companies/non-profits that got money from FTX and are in similar positions, and I know their experience with the case. As usual, everyone is kinda afraid about sharing anything in writing or in public.

If you are a person who's interested in this or need help or how to even start or what the current state-of-anecdotal-info is, I am happy to share whatever I know at that time.
