    Respond to our next question: How can I avoid negotiating the bill after the work is done?

    A client of many years has asked for a percentage discounted from his bill. We frequently perform work for this client, but he does not use our firm exclusively. How can I avoid a round of negotiations over the bill after the work is done, while at the same time maintain a good relationship with our client?
