I'm in a situation where I will be terminated in 6wks and I485+I140 will be filed concurrently through a lawyer who will not know my termination in 3wks. I know once they are filed I can stay in US legally unless the employer revokes I140.
Given, additional cost and effort associated with requesting revocation, I wonder how likely in actual practice an employer would take an extra mile to revoke it?
It depends on the employer. Some request to withdraw I-140s others do not. While it costs a lot to file an I-140 for an employer, it costs them next to nothing to write a letter asking for it to be withdrawn. Whether this will actually have an impact on your case is another matter altogether. However more detail is needed to know the answer to this question.
I also strongly suggest retaining your own lawyer to review your entire situation. It is very unwise to allow a lawyer to file petitions in which you are included when they do not have all of the relevant facts. This could damage your immigration status.
