Long story, short.

Providing legal counsel on large energy infrastructure projects, Arbo’s founder, Chip, wondered why data didn’t have a bigger influence on his clients’ material decisions. As a former naval officer biased for action and a son of entrepreneurs, it was natural for Chip to start LawIQ with the aspiration of using data technology to predict project outcomes.

Entering its sixth successful year and proud to have over 50 blue chip customers, LawIQ is now Arbo and on a mission to modernize energy commerce and help make cleaner energy available to everyone.
