That’s a tough one. As far as I know your options are GC or H1b… neither of which would get you there by year end.

Can’t do it on L1. As McK1 said, your options are H1B or GC. I went the GC route last year and it took 15 months. A third, wildcard, option is to get your firm to second/subcontract you out. Almost impossible to do (and *is* impossible if you are going to a competitor) as it’s complex and needs LOTS of Partner-level goodwill, but I did that as I had some special circumstances…

Get married if you are single, file for asylum and etc.
