Alan Fleishacker
Senior Lecturer


In addition to teaching professional practice and management at the Rice University School of Architecture for over two decades, Alan Fleishacker provides legal consulting services to a select group of design firms in the United States. With combined degrees in architecture and law, he has a unique perspective on the management of design firms and their risk profiles. 

He served as senior vice president, director, and general counsel for 3D/I during most of his career outside Rice, and he was in private law practice during most of the 1990s, representing several architecture firms from Houston and nationally. He assisted architects in developing risk management policies and securing acceptable contracts. 

Fleishacker completed his ten-year term as a member of the national AIA Documents Committee. That committee, an all volunteer group of around twenty architects, drafts well over one hundred contracts and other documents that have become the standard in the construction industry.
