Prior to joining ECO, Kobi served as a member of the  executive board and as the director of regulation and government of Partner Communications Company Ltd.

Kobi has also handled, inter alia, matters relating to governmental intervention in pricing, the introduction of new competitors in various markets, new legislation, telecommunications regulation, consumer protection, privacy and data protection and intellectual property.

Kobi has also handled major litigation cases (including petitions to the High Court of Justice and class action applications). He was also involved in complex commercial activities and transactions and dealt with issues in the areas of corporate law and securities (including the preparation of company prospectuses).

During the years 1980 to 1989, prior to his internship in Law, Kobi was acting as a C.P.A (Isr.) and gained wide experience in auditing, preparation of financial reports, income tax matters and economic advising.
