Is H1B and L1B clock same ? ?
Lot of attorneys have different opinion about the clock reset. Please help ? Is it the filing date of April 2018 which would have not reset my clock since June 2017 to April 2018 is not one year ?

Yes, time spent on L-1B is subtracted from the 6 years max on H-1B.
In this instance as long as you spent at least a year outside the USA, you’ll “reset”.

As long as remained outside the USA for at least a full year or more, then the "clock" is completely "reset".
