Brief case summary: Our client filed an appeal against the resolutions to transform the companies forming a corporate group (the joint stock company was transformed into a limited liability company and the limited liability company became a joint stock company). The transformation procedures were intended to exclude the some of the shareholders from the transformed companies.
