Who are we?
Founded in 2015 by Marcin Durlak and Iwona Durlak, from the outset, IMD Solicitors has taken pride in having strong, identifiable values. Mutual respect, tolerance and openness have laid the foundations for IMD to build an excellent reputation and strong relationships with clients.
Marcin’s great inspiration was his granddad Michal, born in 1919 in Kuty, a small town in what is now Ukraine. He recalls his granddad’s stories about diverse communities living in Kuty, happily, together before the Second World War. Everyone in the community respected each other and the differences which made them unique.
Even more powerful were his grandad’s stories about his suffering during the War and the forgiveness, resilience and kindness that followed after he was liberated from a Nazi concentration camp.
When Marcin was a teenager, he wanted to work for the European Union. Marcin strongly aligns with the EU values of respect, freedom and equality, as well as the concept of Europe with no borders.
Instead, when his native country Poland joined the EU in 2004, he moved to the UK, where he set up IMD Solicitors with Iwona. Marcin’s vision has always been to bring together a diverse team of experts to serve multicultural clients and to connect diverse communities with mutual respect, tolerance and inclusion – values that are so close to him and his family story.
Iwona is very passionate about delivering results for her clients. She is also of Polish origins, and she comes from a small town in the north-east of Poland. Coming from a relatively small town, Iwona has witnessed first-hand that success is often more challenging for those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Throughout her career, Iwona has always been committed to fighting inequality and discrimination with the aid of the justice system – it is often the only route to ensure that those from disadvantaged backgrounds can protect their rights.
Her path to becoming a partner in a law firm in the UK did not come without sacrifice, but without having to make many tough decisions, she would not be so determined to cultivate the fighting spirit at IMD.
IMD Solicitors now offers clients both personal and corporate legal services. We are a multinational full-service law firm and a leading provider of legal services to international clients throughout England and Wales. From small to large enterprises to public and private companies, our solicitors provide tailored legal advice across a wide range of industries and sectors both nationally and internationally.
Our team of legal professionals work alongside a network of highly qualified experts and partners in the UK and abroad, allowing us to offer practical solutions to our clients’ legal needs. We understand the importance of clear communication, which is why we strive to speak with our clients in their native language and value cultural differences. We are client-focused, and we believe in building strong relationships.

Mutual respect is at the heart of our relationship with both clients and colleagues alike. We appreciate that for many clients, getting the legal help they need or discussing sensitive issues with a lawyer can be difficult, so we strive to put their minds at ease. Similarly, our solicitors work best when all of our team members act with empathy, respect and understanding towards their colleagues.
