Default AC21 and H1B -Is it possible

Hi,
Is it possible to be on H1B after AC21 is invoked?
Here is my situation-
I filed I485, EAD and AP in July with approved I140. This month My company is acquired by new company. Starting November 1st I will be employee of new company.
I just finished conference call with my lawyer as per him, There is no change in GC process only New Company has to file AC21 after 180 days of filing 485. When I asked him whether I can maintain my H1 after filing AC21 he said yes.

Is it possible?

Please advise

It is recommended to stay on H1 until 485 is approved.

yes. AC21 is a provision to allow you to change employers without affecting ur 485. It has nothing to do with work authorization. Your authorization can come from ead or h1 transfer.

Default Thanks mhathi

That helps somehow I was under impression that once you invoke AC21 you have to use EAD. I prefer to be on H1 as long as possible till GC come.

Cheers
