L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?

You don’t qualify for EB1C. My lawyers told me that if I want to get a new visa stamp after promotion I can’t do it under L1B so I am doing transfer to L1A right now

I will do EB2 already in the process before we even begun the transfer - they started a couple of months before my promotion and still in PWD stage. We did not even start transfer to L1A yet since my I-94 expires in July next year.

You won't qualify for EB1C since L1A is not solely a prerequisite, you need to demonstrate you have at least 1 year executive experience outside of US, which I'm guessing you don't since you were brought here on L1B.
