High-precision measurements of flavor-transitions are sensitive to the virtual effects of particles at energies beyond the reach of current colliders. In fact, there are measurements of semileptonic B-meson decays which are in tension with the SM predictions and suggest the existence of new lepton non-universal interactions. I will discuss the phenomenological and theoretical implications of these anomalies, including the extent up to which the SM are understood, the new-physics required or the type of high pT signatures and simplified mediators one should be looking for at the LHC.
