Helena Kobrin    Of Counsel

 

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE:

Helena Kobrin was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1978 and to the State Bar of California in 1991.

Ms. Kobrin began her practice in the commercial realm, specializing in transactional matters, banking and other government regulation, as well as real estate and probate work.  For the bulk of her career, and through the Bowles & Moxon and Moxon & Kobrin firms, she represented non-profit organizations  in a large variety of areas, including copyright, trademark, and trade secret issues, contract review and drafting, bankruptcy, litigation, and dispute resolution.  Starting in the 1990s, Ms. Kobrin was instrumental in establishing protections for copyrights and trademarks on the Internet.  She represented plaintiffs in the first-ever copyright infringement suit over unauthorized online postings, a case that led to the passage of a federal law  requiring service providers to remove copyright infringements from websites upon receiving notice, while protecting providers proactive in taking down such copyrighted material online.

Ms. Kobrin is now Of Counsel to the Law Offices of Timothy Bowles, using her extensive experience to assist clients in the many areas of her practice, as well as in the law firm’s continuing specialty of employment law.
