Based on the information provided, one would be entitled to a total of 6 years in the US based on the combined time in L1 and H1B. However, if one has an approved I-140 petition and their priority date is not current, then they can apply for H1B extensions in 3 year increments. If the I-140 sponsoring employer withdraws the I-140 petition, then it can no longer be relied on for the extensions.

Please consult directly with a qualified immigration attorney to discuss your case in detail.
