Luke Anton Netto

Managing Director

Luke’s main areas of practice include commercial disputes, banking and financial services, civil fraud and asset tracing, unjust enrichment and/or restitution claims and criminal defence, with a particular focus on white-collar crime.

Before pursuing law, Luke spent several years in the highly competitive world of banking, at Standard Chartered Bank. Whilst in banking, he focused mainly on mutual funds. After reading law and prior to joining Netto & Magin LLC, Luke trained at a highly reputable dispute resolution firm where he had the benefit of assisting and learning under two Senior Counsels.

Clients (organisations and individuals) frequently instruct Luke as lead counsel on complex litigation matters. He is involved in a diverse range of litigation matters before all levels of the Supreme Court of Singapore.
In addition, Luke is passionate about serving the community and regularly takes on matters, on a pro bono basis with the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS).
