Deleting Google Local Listing

I got a client who got a business listing.


Recently he received one negative review as personal attack and didn't reflect business experience. 


Google removed the review as it appeared to have violated the guidelines.


How, the client would like to protect his online presence and he has decided not to have Google local listing.


What is the process to delete the listing? Its very basic listing and no reviews apart form the above which was deleted.

your client can't avoid getting listed with his business.

Google as a searching engine will gather the information from all available internet ressources.

And a listing already listed can marked a closed only - it can't deleted at all.
