Changing Assignee After Patent Issues

Does anyone out there know if you can change - NOT correct - the assignee name on an issued patent by filing a Certificate of Correction?  
 
I have a case where ownership in the patent changed after the patent issued.  So, I'm wondering if the PTO will reflect this change using the Certificate of Correction procedure.

I don't think so.  I think there has to have been an error when the IF was paid.  The PTO uses the information on the IF transmittal (PTOL-8 5) and if that information was correct at the time the IF was paid, there is no error and no cert of correction is appropriate.  The change would simply be reflected in the assignment records.

Name changes can be recorded in the PTO the same way you record assignments.
 
One of my former clients had gone through 3-4 name changes during the pendency of their application.  I can dig around for an example document, but I'm pretty sure it's just a statement signed by an officer of the company documenting the name change.  It might even be a standard form used in other corporate matters.
 
Regards.
