Maarten can answer you with more detail, but I would imagine the
repeated events issue can be dealt with by either clustering on firm-id,
via -logit ..., cluster(firmid)- or -xtlogit-. Note that the model
estimated by -seqlogit- can be estimated by restructuring the data and
fitting individual logits, so incorporating the cluster() option or
-xtlogit- should be easy. There is a simple example at 
 -- see section 5.3.4. 

That said, I'm not convinced that your implicit dependent variable is
necessarily suited to sequential logit.
