A 2008 Business Combination Agreement between two law firms was governed by German law and provided for arbitration in Zürich under the ICC rules. A first dispute arose in 2010, which led to an arbitral proceeding conducted in Frankfurt and not in Zürich, pursuant to an agreement of the parties. The claim concerned some amounts allegedly due under the Business Combination Agreement but it was rejected in a first award in 2011.
