The Joint Corporate Committee on Cuban Claims was formed in 1975 by a number of U.S. companies and individuals whose property had been seized in Cuba. The mission of the Committee is to ensure that valid U.S. claims are fairly settled, either through the return of the property seized or the payment of monetary compensation.

The Committee believes that the return of freedom and democracy to the Cuban people, coupled with a fair and reasonable settlement of the U.S. property claims, would rapidly accelerate new investment in Cuba and contribute to the revitalization of the Cuban economy. The Committee further believes that normalization of trade and diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba should not occur unless it is preceded or accompanied by a just settlement of these property claims.
