Jeffrey Hallam

Managing Partner at Sideman & Bancroft LLP

Jeffrey Hallam represents corporate clients in connection with their brand protection, anti-counterfeiting and anti-fraud enforcement efforts. This representation includes the conducting of internal and external investigations, often with the goal of referring individuals and entities that have committed crimes against the corporations to law enforcement agents and prosecutors, and then seeking restitution recoveries on behalf of his corporate clients. Mr Hallam’s work in this area has focused on crimes involving the trafficking of counterfeit goods, major frauds (including sales and diversion fraud and warranty fraud), employee frauds and thefts, and computer intrusions.

In addition to his criminal referral work, Mr Hallam has also handled a wide variety of civil litigation matters involving anti-counterfeiting and trademark infringement, fraud, unfair business practices, trade secret misappropriation, insider trading and breach of contract. Mr Hallam has assisted clients in developing US customs enforcement programmes to seize counterfeit goods at the borders, and in addressing the sale of counterfeit and infringing items on the online marketplaces. Mr Hallam’s work in this area includes the coordination of anti-counterfeiting efforts globally.

Mr Hallam is a member of the American Bar Association, White Collar Crime Section, and a member of the Bar Association of San Francisco. He is currently a member of INTA’s North American Anti-counterfeiting Committee.

Mr Hallam has presented on a number of American Bar Association panels involving the criminal enforcement of IP rights and major frauds.
