    Hi all,
    I am doing a translation on a brand takeover and I'd like to see if i can get a better idea of what associes conseils is in the following context:

    "Rachetee aux fondateurs (la famille Georges) entre 1992 et 2000 par M. J-B. et 2 associes conseils, la marque fit l'objet d'une forte exposition mediatique"...

    So my attempt is
    Bought from the founders (the Georges family) between 1992 and 2000 by Mr. J-B and 2 associates, the brand had strong media exposure...
    any help appreciated

    Thanks for the message.
    I don't have much experience of takeovers myself so that could be it, but sounds unfamiliar to me.

    Associates who have only advisory positions. Do you think it could be silent partner?

    Thanks for your message!
    I really don't know. i wasn't given any context other than the text. is down so can't check that.
    I do like the sound of it but I can't find one link on the internet between the two.
