    Is it correct?

    We will discuss with the lawyers to seek for other action.

    The work "discuss" is a transitive verb. Why is this sentence correct or it is incorrect actually?

    I would have phrased this as "We will discuss with the lawyers other ways in which we can take action".

    * I think, sometimes there are some verbs both trans.v and intrans.v

    - Ex: They're discussing in my office now ( intran.v)
