I work with Organization A on L1 visa, which is expiring in Dec 2017. My organization doesn't have current plan to file an extension. However, Organization B wants to hire me and going to file H1B petition for me. What if my H1B petition is approved and Organization A extends my L1 tenure and i still feel like working with Organization A?
A question to ask of the counsel who will file for you, they get to pick.

This is an inquiry that you need to discuss with employer B's immigration attorney as to how the petition will be filed, as a change of status request or a consular notification. This will matter to determine whether and when you must work for employer B or whether you will have a choice to remain with employer A after the H1b petitionnis approved.
