Peter Done: Group Managing Director and Founder

Peter Done is Peninsula’s Founder and Managing Director.

In 1983, he started Peninsula with his brother, Fred, to offer 24/7 employment law, HR and health & safety support to small & fast-growing businesses. The reason?

The Done brothers had previously suffered poor legal advice at an employment tribunal, which led to them paying a hefty settlement. They realised SMEs needed a better, more affordable option…

Peninsula was launched as the first consultancy to make HR and health & safety services accessible to businesses of all sizes. From writing staff contracts and health & safety policies to tribunal representation, Peninsula offered complete support to take the stress out of running a business—without the expense of a local solicitor. As a result, the business grew to be the market leader.

Today, Peninsula looks after over 33,742 companies in the UK. It also offers services worldwide, with offices in the Republic of Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

In 2018 & 2019, Glassdoor named Peter as one of the UK’s top CEOs, and The Sunday Times includes Peninsula in its annual Best Places to Work list. Peter is also regularly published in the Financial Times and Forbes.

And out of the office, he’s an avid match-going Manchester United fan.
