Most of the procedures I've read involve destructive voltages and are
effective only 50% or less of the time.  If you only have the one chip
you risk losing it as a comparison for future work.

I suggest that your time, money and effort are better put to use having
someone recreate the product for you.

Also, keep in mind that unless you actually purchased the code you do
not have a right to it and you can still be prosecuted by the eventual
owner if it does end up somewhere else.

In the future make sure you either buy the code outright (and make it
part of your contract to receive code at milestone events and/or upon
payment) or put a clause in the contract that if the company is sold or
otherwise unable to render the code at a future point in time then you
gain some copyright access to it.  Have them agree to hold the code in
escrow for such a future event.
