Ownership requested denied - next steps?

I'm hoping someone can help.


We have a client who had an outside company set up their Google My Business (GMB) profile a few years ago. However, they cannot remember which company did this for them. I have followed all necessary steps to request ownership and 4 days after requesting ownership, my request was denied by the user who operates this GMB profile. There is no way to appeal this, nor is there a way I can submit a request ownership form again.


I was able to successfully suggest an edit to the opening hours and it was approved almost immediately, which is great! However, we would still require access/ownership to this account going forward.


Has anyone and idea what we could possibly do to gain ownership?


Thanks in advance,
