Dr. Markus Salge is a Senior Director with Alvarez & Marsal Disputes and Investigations Services in Germany, brings more than eight years of experience in dispute advisory. His primary area of concentration is the valuation of damages in dispute proceedings: applying the system dynamics methodology and other techniques from the economist’s tool-set.

Dr. Salge has worked with clients across a range of industries, including defense, semiconductor, civil construction, pharmaceutical, domestic appliances and financial services. Dr. Salge has undertaken assignments involving international companies listed on German and international stock exchanges and has worked on assignments throughout Europe, the U.S., and the Middle East.

Most recently at A&M, Dr. Salge was a party-appointed expert and gave testimony in an International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) arbitration regarding alleged delay and disruptions and other damages in a civil construction project. Previously, he was the party-appointed expert and gave testimony in two ICC arbitrations regarding lost profits and other damages allegedly stemming from the termination of civil construction projects in the Maghreb region in Africa and separately in Brazil.

Dr. Salge was involved in large and complex damage valuations, such as: the valuation of delays and disruptions allegedly accrued in a high-profile, ten-digit billion Euros civil construction project and the valuation of a collateralized debt obligation (CDO) together with its default probability and conditional losses in a several hundred million dollar litigation case.

Prior to joining A&M, Dr. Salge spent four years with the decision science and dynamic simulation group at PA Consulting Group and Greenwood Strategic Advisors. As assistant researcher and lecturer at Mannheim University, he taught system dynamics to graduate students and executives alongside his system-dynamics-based research into making process improvement programs deliver real benefits.
