News International, the U.K. arm of the Rupert Murdoch-controlled media conglomerate News Corp., has tapped British law firm Olswang to help it try to chart a course out of the phone-hacking scandal that has besieged its News of the World tabloid newspaper.

Olswang will direct a review of News International’s actions preceding and following the hacking and work with the company to revise its internal policies to prevent similar ethical scandals from occurring in the future, according to U.K. publication Legal Week. Olswang senior partner Mark Devereaux and head of judicial review and media law specialist Dan Tench are leading a team from the firm handling the review and code revision, Legal Week reports.
