STT i am afraid you are wrong. the L1a can be used by anyone who has worked (or owned) for a compnay for over 12 months. they can be transferred to an existing or open a new branch in the US. The criteria for the UK company is not set in stone but you have to prove it can continue without the transferee. The US side has 12 months to get established and on renewal has to show a business plan for expansion and more importantly creation of jobs for USC.
your post#6 does indeed refer to an EB5 investor visa.

The E2 visa which is a company creation one or buying an existing compnay, for those not meeting the 12 months requirements is one that deos not lead to a GC.

to the OP -change your lawyer -if you need a good one please DM me

Unless company B is related to company A, company B will need to go through the labor certification process for you. That can take anywhere from a few months to a couple of years. If that is successful (the company will need to show that there are no U.S. workers available, willing and qualified for the job), the company can then file an I-140 immigrant petition for you. If you have maintained and are maintaining your L-1 (or another nonimmigrant) status, and there is not a backlog in quota numbers for your category and nationality, you can concurrently file an adjustment of status application, and apply for a work authorization. Once you have that work authorization, you can go to work for company B. However, if that petition or application is denied, you'll have no other status to fall back on, and will need to leave the country asap.

That quota backlog issue is important. If you are stuck in it, it could be years before you can file the adjustment application.
