While Sinnott works on patents and trademarks, Hynes focuses mainly on patents, from prosecution through to litigation. Their involvement in the community includes Sinnott’s long-time membership in the Christian Legal Fellowship as an executive on the board of directors, and Hynes’s role as Chair of the Trade and IP Policy Committee for the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada.
