That depends on Clients. Some clients dont have client interview. But most have. It will be mostly general discussion and easy to medium level questions on your tech. There are some rare exceptions.

Agreed totally depends on client. But nowadays even for non lateral employees clients are taking ng interviews

Yes they will…

Depends on the project and type of work. Sometimes there will be only one round of tech interview of around 1hr (1st and 2nd round combined).

like

I have been through client interview recently, technical architect took the interview for around 30 minutes.
Questions was related to previous experience, and tech stack.
You can expect scenario based questions from technology you are working in (eash to medium level)
They just wanted to check how compatible you are with the project requirment.
