Restructuring a company

There are many reasons to consider restructuring your business, for example, if your business has grown significantly, or if you plan to sell. Depending on what your plans are, there are several ways to achieve your goal. Examples are merging, splitting, expanding with a new branch or dissolving an existing branch. In other words, restructuring involves the entire legal repertoire of business law.
