The ‘Legal Policy’ law firm (hereinafter “LP”) advises and provides legal services to companies, legal entities and individuals doing business in Mongolia. Legal Policy firm was founded in 2008 by teaming up of a Mongolian leading university’s  professor, a researcher, a commercial bank lawyer and an advocate, and today it has become an organization that has competent operational experience, is trusted by its clients, cooperates with international prestigious law firms and tries to form high standard of business ethics.

In the first few years, the firm provided legal services, including a legal analysis and policy advice, and played a leading role in policy analyses for ongoing judicial and innovative legal documents and the formulation of those documents’ project and architecture.

Today the firm is operating under the new management of Mr Otgonbayar Lkhamsuren, who is a qualified attorney.

One of the aspirational policies of the new management team of LP is to become a national leading law firm, which can contribute high technology and innovation and open up an appropriate competitive legal environment within Mongolia.
