On B1 you can’t technically work..you are on a business trip to attend meeting/conference or for knowledge transfer...

Yep. On top of it, if the traveler indicates to the consular office when applying OR to CBP officer when entering the country that they plan to work, the visa could be denied or they could be on the return flight home with no future chances of re-entry

^agree

You cannot do any work under B1 visa. This is the immigration abuse that most body shops do. It’s a shame.

Like what was said above, B1 activities are restricted. It doesn’t matter what your firm is.
