COS means you would be in H1 status from the H1 start date. You would no longer be in L1 status then.

Search for leapfrog on the internet .(I am assuming your L1B is still valid).Travel outside US before 1st Oct 2012 and come back after 1st Oct 2012. You will enter the US on L1 status.You should be employed with H1 employer wef 1st Oct if you don't do this.

You can file a H1 with company C but it would be filed as COS.(if you execute a leapfrog).
