The new Commercial Code includes a detailed process on the conversion of a company's legal form. This process was not regulated in detail under the previous code, although certain provisions dealt with the process and the effects of the conversion depending on the original legal form. Overall, the Commercial Code provides a comprehensive regime governing both the conversion process and the consequences of conversion for all shareholders.

It illustrates the importance of a claimant in such cases valuing its claim properly and establishing the causal link between the breach committed by a defendant and the loss suffered by the claimant.
