    I came to US 2 years back on L1 Visa from Company A. During this year, a company B processed my H1 Visa and I got thru the lottery. I think company B filed a COS (will i be able to check if its a COS from the I797?).
    Now Company C is ready to hire me. The problem is i havent started working for company B on H1. I am still on L1 working with company A. I thought I will not be able to do a H1 transfer to company C as I dont have a
    even 1 pay slip from company B. However company C says that I can still get a H1 under company C without a transfer as long as i dont start working for them. Is this correct? Is there any risk involved for me i this? Your help is appreciated.
