Explanation:

All three words are used in the sentence above to contrast their application.

clients [plural] refers to a group of people who do business with a professional.

client's [singular possessive] is used to show possession of an item or thought (displeasure) belonging to only one client.

clients' [plural possessive] is used to show possession of items or thoughts (representatives) belonging to more than one client.
