Osborne Clarke appoints City trainee contact

Osborne Clarke has tasked corporate partner Kalpesh Tanna with taking responsibility for the firm’s London trainees.

Tanna will work as the key partner contact for trainees in the City and will also work on developing stronger links with London universities and law schools. He will work alongside training principal Nick Johnson, who is responsible for graduate recruitment ­policy. The firm appointed partners to similar roles in its other main UK offices two years ago: corporate partner Sara Valentine fills the role in its Thames Valley office, while pensions specialist Jonathan Hazlett is the trainee partner in Bristol.
