Our Approach



Duran & Duran-Schulze provides complete transparency for our corporate and individual clients at all times. During the entire lifecycle of all cases, operational and strategic questions constantly come up. These questions will change according to the change in law as time passes. At Duran & Duran-Schulze, we recognize this and tailor our approach to fit you the Corporation or you the Individual.

Whether your corporation desires to participate in the “global value chain in legal services” or not, Duran & Duran-Shulze will always be transparent.

Duran & Duran-Schulze has the capabilities to assemble geographically dispersed legal teams for labor arbitrage and/or productivity arbitrage, lawyers on demand or foreign lawyers to conduct legal work or challenges, in a manner that is no different from if it were carried out by Duran & Duran-Schulze onshore. We are solution-focused.

Right and wrong is not always clear. Despite the complexities of the legal and regulatory environment, Duran & Duran-Schulze identifies and readily shares with constituencies legal tactics, strategies, risks involved, possible outcomes, reputational ramifications, regulatory and legal consequences.

Whether it is the board, the CEO or the CFO we remain transparent while maintaining gravitas and an executive presence at all times.

On the corporate side, many possible obtuse issues exist in cases. With Duran & Duran-Schulze’s expertise in financial management we easily remain transparent for our corporate clients, including but not limited to: assessing the cost and allocation of resources, making use of contractual arrangements that connect cost to value and risk better than the old substitute; the billable hour.

Duran & Duran-Schulze provides each corporate client with a transparent and easily accesible source for relevant information about various transactions, as well as current and major transactions. We maintain an archive of all past major transactions and an easily accessible list of the final decisisons.

These sources for each major transaction includes relevant information about the specific transaction, including applications, petitions, comments, and other pleadings, ex parte filings, and the firm’s decisions.

Duran & Duran-Schulze shares an informal timeline with its corporate clients regarding the processing of applications to promote transparency and predictability in the firm’s process or status of a pending transaction/pending application. DDS is always listening to feedback from clients how to modulate our internal procedures to better accommodate our clients. Also, keeping your best interest in mind, augmenting our services with experts or third parties would be discussed before hand, not after the fact.

On the individual side, Duran & Duran-Schulze remains just as transparent and solution-focused.  With the highest of ethics and integrity in place, we proffer transparency on bills, discuss alternative fee arrangements, consider fee structures and which are the most efficient and sustainable economically.

The legal world can be difficult to understand for many individuals, not all. Duran & Duran-Schulze is client-service based. This is not a fancy phrase. We believe “client-service” means, we will go to great lengths to clearly explain and translate the legal objectives to our clients, to serve you a better understanding for which the service you are paying, and you can have a better appreciation for our good judgement.

Duran & Duran-Schulze remains side by side with the individual, formulates a plan to preserve the best aspects of the zealous advocate/trusted advisor and client relationship, keeping in mind the economics in flux.
