Access Old Client Data

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We took over GA management on a client's site over a year ago, while they kept an active historical GA account on the website as well. The person who managed that account has since lost access to their historical GA account and he/we cannot gather that pertinent data. We currently run analytics on the site - we are looking to attain data from years past. 

Any help is much appreciated,
Thank you!
