Can creditors ask accountants for financial information?

I am a beneficiary of a trust which loaned someone money, he isn't interested in repaying right now that the loan term is up as he is in a lot of debt but has a lot of assets. Ideally I don't want to go to court to get a Bailiff to seize assets, but at the same time we haven't been given any information... show more I am a beneficiary of a trust which loaned someone money, he isn't interested in repaying right now that the loan term is up as he is in a lot of debt but has a lot of assets. Ideally I don't want to go to court to get a Bailiff to seize assets, but at the same time we haven't been given any information about his value of assets for security. Are accountants required by law to reveal financial information to their clients' creditors? Or do I need to get my lawyer to contact him?
