At Duran & Duran-Schulze Law, we are committed to helping businesses in the Philippines deal with the intricacies of local and international laws. We are here to help you avoid and overcome any legal stumbling blocks.

The Philippines is clearly on the road to progress – a fact that has not escaped the attention of local and international investors. As may be expected in a rising economy, however, the path is not completely clear of obstacles and speed bumps.

If you are doing business in the Philippines or are planning to, you know that the legal landscape is strewn with intricate and often confusing elements that can potentially affect your operations and profitability.

We have the expertise and the dedication to sort through every detail of your legal needs and provide solutions that will impact your business in positive ways.


We’re Legally Sis!

A podcast about the legal world with a sisterly twist. We’re here to give you a laugh, share our knowledge, and help you find your inner “sister” (even if that’s just in spirit). We’re sisters, so it’s kind of like being in therapy with your best friend—but without all the awkward silences! And while Legally Sis is serious at times (don’t worry, no spoilers), it’s always fun.
