Law (general)
French term or phrase: βà
I do not understand what this symbol may mean, it is being used in relation to two firm's names: XXX βà XXXXXXX.

In case it does not come through, it looks like a beta symbol followed by an 'a' grave.

Thanks

English translation:& to
Explanation:
The β is quite commonly mistaken for the & (= and) symbol.

Depending on the surrounding context, I wonder if this isn't meant to stand for "& to...", suggesting that the document or communication in question should be sent to both companies named XXX AND XXXXXX

Only your wider context could confirm or rule out this suggestion...
