Discussions are at an advanced stage


New Member
I received an email that contains the sentence “Discussions are at an advanced stage” concerning a legal dispute that opposing teams of lawyers are trying to work out and meaning that they are close to an agreement. After looking up the sentence on google I found that “advanced stage” is mostly used with the word “talks”. Does it sound unusual or non-idiomatic when used with the word “discussion”?

Can anyone think of an alternative expression?

Thank you!
