Your situations, our solutions …

Dr. Waubke GmbH specialises in supporting small and medium-sized manufacturing companies in special situations. We define these as challenges facing a company during its lifecycle for which it does not have sufficient in-house specialist capacity. These are the situations where we can help.


… as an entrepreneur

Increasingly complex markets and steadily growing cost pressure leave companies with very little leeway to prepare sufficiently for all the challenges they might face. We advise entrepreneurs and managing directors of small and medium-sized manufacturing companies.

… as a shareholder

In difficult situations, providers of financing may be unwilling or unable to directly intervene in a company’s operations. We also advise, plan and act on behalf of shareholders and investors.

… as a manager

Special situations often require quick, targeted changes in specific areas of a company, while resources are typically focused on managing day-to-day business. We are also happy to advise the managers of individual areas of a company …

… as a bank

As providers of financing, banks have a particular interest in how a company’s development is realised and presented in special business situations. We frequently support banks when it comes to intensive support.


Underperformance in some areas

It is entirely normal for parts of a company to experience difficulties suddenly or over a longer period of time.

Earnings and liquidity difficulties

A number of factors can lead to a company experiencing sudden or persistent earnings and liquidity difficulties.

Risk management

Some people say risk management is the main task of a company’s management.

Acquisition of companies/divisions

For the buyer, a company acquisition typically involves a particular opportunity and a particular risk at the same time.

Disposal of companies/divisions

Managing business succession and company disposals often presents entirely new challenges for those involved – going far beyond their day-to-day business.
