Precision measurements of CP violating observables in the mixing and decay of B mesons provide excellent opportunities to search for possible contributions from New Physics beyond the Standard Model. In this contribution, key measurements pur-sued by the LHCb collaboration at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are described. Important results have been reported on topics including the CP violating phase φs in Bs0 → J/ψφ (and related) decays, the angle γ of the CKM unitarity triangle, and direct CP violation effects in two-and three-body B meson decays to charmless final states. Latest results on CP violation in the charm sector are also reviewed. Results obtained from the analysis of data collected in 2011 already match or even surpass the measurements of previous experiments in their precision. All results obtained so far are compatible with Standard Model predictions.
