As a trustee you are entitled to know the decisions and transactions, and if money is being transferred you must be part of that decision. The Law Society doesn't have power over family trusts, but you could get a lawyer to write to the other trustees expressing concern, and telling them that this is a breach of the trust deed, but the solution is to consult. If they ignore you, you could apply to the High Court and ask for the breaches to be looked at and possibly removal of the trustees and an independent trustee appointed. That would be a serious and expensive option, and you should try to negotiate first.
