I was working on L1-B visa for employer A. L1-B expired in Sep12 & extension was applied before expiry. L1-B extension application is still in process. Meanwhile, my H1-B visa got approved with COS from employer B in Dec-12 and i have moved on H1 with employer B. If L1-B extension gets approved now, what will be my status? Can i still continue to work on H1 with my new employer?
If i can stay on H1B only if the L1B extension application gets rejected now, will it be good to request employer A to withdraw the L1 extension application? Can i do something to withdraw it, in case the employer does not agree to withdraw it?
Last in is what usually applies. So if the H-1B COS from L-1B to H-1B was applied the latest than that means that the L-1B ought to be denied later since you already have your H-1B now which was filed after the L-1B extension with employer A. So you can stay with employer B on your H-1B.

No offense, but, by filing multiple applications, you have made a bit of a 'mess' of things.
Talk to the immigration lawyer working for the company you want to work for .... be completely honest and have him/her sort things out.
