I am a member of our family and there are several family trusts and companies in our family. Unfortunately we have taken out intervention orders against each other and my brother who is in charge of the trust has formed a relationship with the our family accountant and is paying, I believe, exhorbitant fees and commissions for accountancy work and loans acquired for a property development company to her. Can I and if so how can I obtain copies of documents and tax records of the various trusts and companies so I can see what is going on.

Ask. And put your request in writing.

There's a fair chance your brother is breaching his trustee duties and if he has he will need to pay personally for any losses he causes.
