Can I file to change status from L1 to H1?

Question: I currently have an L1 visa stamp. My employer is filing for an extension. I have also filed for a H1B visa through another employer. Is there any risk in applying for H1B and L1 at the same time?

Answer: You are allowed to file multiple petitions. One petition does not jeopardize the other. However, whichever petition gets approved last will be your visa status from the start date of that petition.
