creditors' committee

creditors' committee
England, Wales
After a company has been placed into administration, a meeting of the company's creditors (usually convened by an administrator shortly after his appointment) can resolve to establish a creditors' committee under Part 2, Section B, Chapter 7 of the Insolvency Rules 1986, which will consist of at least three and no more than five elected creditors of the company.
The purpose of the creditors' committee is to assist the administrator in the discharge of his functions and to determine the administrator's remuneration. The administrator will call the creditors' committee's first meeting within six weeks of its establishment and thereafter it will meet regularly.

The committee appointed by the US Trustee to represent the interests of unsecured creditors in Chapter 11 cases. It ordinarily consists of the seven largest unsecured creditors willing to serve, although the US Trustee has discretion to determine the committee's size and membership. Occasionally, in large Chapter 7 cases, creditors will elect a creditors' committee consisting of between three and 11 unsecured creditors who may consult with the Chapter 7 case trustee about the administration of the estate.
