I just tried a quick test and this works:
Expression in the Find box: &([a-z][A-Za-z]*)
Expression in the Replace box: $1

The find expression looks for the ampersand followed by a lowercase letter, followed by zero or more alphabetics, and captures everything apart from the ampersand, which is outside the parentheses.

The replace expression says to replace everything that was found (including the ampersand), with the text in the capture group, which is the portion in parentheses.

You will most likely need to modify the find portion to match your exact requirements.
