Dead easy :)

Get-DistributionGroup *DL*

We can do pattern matching if you want more complex things.

PS the command above should be run from the Exchange Management Shell, or any shell with the Exchange CmdLets loaded.

Thanks, but I am aware of this.
I am looking to pull specific DLs with specific word in their names.

Like DL-NAM-NY-ABC Team1
DL-EUR-SW-ABC Team5

So I want to pull such DLS with ABC in their name...

Any suggestions??
