Bitter Advocacy

Bitter Advocacy is located in the centre of The Hague, the place where the government of The Netherlands has its seat. All work is done or managed by sole practitioner Jan Willem Bitter, a member of the Dutch bar since 1983. Being a sole practitioner has the advantage for clients that all contacts with the firm are with the partner in charge himself, and all work is done or managed by one single person. In complicated matters, other lawyers or specialists may be sought on a case by case basis in order to ensure such excellent services as the clients will require. Jan Willem Bitter’s extensive national and international network allows him to seek ad-hoc assistance wherever and whenever required. The firm is also available to assist other lawyers in matters where his expertise is required. The firm has no third-party account.

Jan Willem Bitter has registered the following principal (and secondary) legal practice areas in the Netherlands Bar’s register of legal practice areas (rechtsgebiedenregister):
- Civil procedural law (including arbitration law) and
- Contract law (including the law of agency and distribution)

Based on this registration, he is required to obtain ten training credits per calendar year in each registered principal legal practice area in accordance with the standards set by the Netherlands Bar.
