What do our clients say


Michael Saul

Michael Saul heads up TJL Solicitors’ cosmetic surgery negligence department, the first specialist legal department in England and Wales dedicated to helping victims of negligent cosmetic surgery. Michael’s team at TJL Solicitors has successfully concluded a legion of cases arising from the full range of cosmetic surgery procedures and treatments.

Michael also represented a group of women and men in a landmark legal action against doctors and clinics who provided a facial cosmetic treatment called Isolagen. In a groundbreaking judgment handed down in May 2014, the Court of Appeal ruled, in favour of Michael’s clients, that (1) claims within the product literature that the treatment used only the patient’s own skin cells were materially false, as the treatment in fact contained animal material (foetal calf serum) and (2) those false claims amounted to misrepresentations on the part of the treating doctors and clinics, as they adopted the manufacturer’s literature by distributing it to prospective patients without making any disclaimer. This is believed to be the first reported case in which doctors have been held liable for the contents of a product manufacturer’s literature.

He graduated with a degree in law from Newcastle University in 1996 and worked for a number of leading personal injury and insurance law firms in Manchester before joining TJL Solicitors in 2002.

Michael is a recognised spokesperson on the subject of cosmetic surgery negligence and has featured regularly in the media including in the ITV1 programme “Tonight:The Real Cost of Beauty”, BBC1 programme “Inside Out”, Granada Reports on ITV1, Look North on ITV1 and BBC Radio 5live. Michael has also contributed to articles in the BBC and Daily Mail online, in You Magazine, The Observer and in numerous other national and regional newspapers.

Michael is accredited by The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers as a Senior Litigator.
