Present and future experiments will reach unprecedented precision in the measurements of physical quantities related to B-physics. Therefore an accurate theoretical determination of intrinsically non-perturbative parameters, relevant for studies of B-physics, is required in many phenomenological analyses to further constrain the Standard Model and to explore New Physics scenarios. The goal of lattice QCD calculations is to provide the required non-perturbative information with competitive statistical and systematic errors. Despite the intrinsic difficulties in simulating the non-perturbative dynamic of the b-quark with currently numerically affordable lattice spacings, B-physics quantities can nevertheless be calculated with high precision. I will present results for selected physical quantities obtained employing a well tested, though recently developed, method.
