1. Yes, I can confirm that your understanding is correct.

2. Regarding your new employer, your lawyers will provide the necessary assistance and guidance. It's important to note that in your current situation, the requirements differ from when you initially obtained your L-1A or EB-1C visa. At that time, you were required to demonstrate that you had the appropriate experience with the related company. However, now that you are in the AC21 portability phase, you are no longer obligated to fulfill that specific requirement.
