Using data equivalent to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb−1 collected by the LHCb experiment during Run I (2011-2012), studies of beauty mesons decaying to a final state containing open charm are performed, concluding with a number of new results. Direct CP-violation is explored in B±Dh± decays through several measurements of CP violating observables, where the charmed meson D is reconstructed in both 2-track and 4-track final states. A measurement of the B± production asymmetry at LHCb is reported using B±Dπ± decays, and a complementary measurement of the CP asymmetry in B±JK± decays made. A search for the rare Bc− → D(*)π and Bc− → D (*)K decays concludes this work.
