Query about H1B Visa transfer

I have my H1B through a consultant company in USA. I never traveled on this visa and never worked for this consultant company. Now I have a direct job offer from another employer. My new employer wants me to work for them directly instead of going through my current visa sponsor. Can I transfer my visa to my new employer and enter US on this new visa? What is required for this? And how much time shall it take?

ANSWER: 

Sure. Have the new employer apply for H-1 for you. Apply for premium processing.
