What Peninsula offers

Today our services go beyond employment and HR to cover health and safety management, insurance, employee wellbeing, and much more besides. Whatever we do, the service is always provided by a handpicked team of experts, so you can be sure you're getting the best.

All of which means more peace of mind for you, and more time for you to concentrate on what you do best: growing your business.

We have expanded to provide these services to small businesses in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada meaning that more people are protected by Peninsula.

Our first specialism was employment law. For a small business to navigate that maze is next to impossible without the right help. But the cost of having an HR professional on staff is too high for most small businesses, and traditional lawyers often don't understand small business needs.
