We consider <i>ZH</i> and <i>WH</i> production at the Large Hadron Collider, where the Higgs decays to a <i>b¯b</i> pair. We use jet substructure techniques to reconstruct the Higgs boson and construct angular observables involving leptonic decay products of the vector bosons. These efficiently discriminate between the tensor structure of the <i>HVV</i> vertex expected in the Standard Model and that arising from possible new physics, as quantified by higher dimensional operators. This can then be used to examine the CP nature of the Higgs as well as CP mixing effects in the <i>HZZ</i> and <i>HWW</i> vertices separately
