i have a l1B visa which was valid till March 2012. Currently, in i94 which is valid till Dec 2014. Entered US in June 2009. Five years gets completed by June 2014. Can I apply for a green card conversion? Please explain the process.
Your employer has to sponsor you for one of the employment based categories, most likely Perm is the next step. There are other options that need to be considered, you need a consultation with an immigration attorney, can't discuss them on avvo, takes time and much more Information. You need to get started ASAP.
There is no such thing as a conversion from L-1B to a greencard.
L-1A yes, B... no.
