Can I AOS on old company's I-140?

Asked over 2 years ago - Evanston, IL

i was working with a consulting company for a project with company B. Company B hired me directly. prior to working with company B, company A (consulting firm) had filed my I-140 under the EB2 category. can I adjust status on the company A's I-140 while working with company B? How do i find out if i-140 has been revoked? do i need to notify either of the companies that I am filing an I-485?
