Why would your wife need to transfer H1 to your employer? I was on H1b and my spouse was using his EAD (we got the EAD through his application in the 2007 fiasco, his PD is EB3 May 2003). I never used the EAD as I had my own H1B. My PD was in EB2 May 2007. When it became current I filed the i485 in Sept 2011 through my employer and just added my husband as the dependent. We got the GC in Jan 2012. Your company lawyer should add your wife to your application.
