I am on L1B visa currently. I was promoted to a manager position and hence employer filed for my L1A amendment + extension petition which was denied by USCIS. Reason still unknown. Can the lawyers file for an L1B based extension now?

For L1A I believe you must hold a managerial position outside the US for at least 1 year

that's one of the qualification. But if you are in US already on L1B and get promoted to manager position, you still qualify for L1A change of status.

I believe that you keep your original visa. Try consular processing for the extension as well

I wasn't aware consular processing is possible for extensions. What petition one needs to carry to appear for consular L1B extension? The first L1B visa I got was through blanket L1B petition.

Was your original L-1 with USCIS or the consulate?

You can extend L1B if L1A got denied.

Lawyer's aren't convinced to go down this path. Can Managers be on L1B visa status?
