Due to the ongoing economic recession in Mongolia and the fall of commodity prices, many projects and deals did not procure expected outcome of contractual parties. Also, such economic hardship contributes to defaults and lead to disputes and litigation. In addition globalisation, foreign investment and trade fuel rise in the number of international disputes in or outside of Mongolia involving a Mongolian party or Mongolian assets.
Such involvement of international aspect also complicates enforcement of court decisions and arbitral awards.
