L1B, move to parent company?

Asked over 1 year ago - Kirkland, WA

I am on an L1B (intra-company transfer, specialized knowledge), and my current team is likely to be merged/integrated with the parent company.

I have my parent company's name on my visa, but used my employer's name in the DS-150 application when I moved to the US last year.

Does this change my status, and would I need to change to an H-1B?

Thanks.
