I may be completely wrong on this and Geoff Johns had some other idea in mind, but Captain Cold and (most of) his Rogues did turn legitimate after the death of Barry Allen with Cold starting his own business with sister Lisa as partner.
He didn't appear much in Wally's run on The Flash but issue #27 and 28 are two very fine issues of a storyline that sees a traumatised and recovering Wally facing off against the hired help of Captain Cold and The golden Glider, there's a neat irony in the story as on the face of it this is a traditional Flash versus the Rogues, but in fact Captain Cold is operating here on licence and perfectly within the legal requirement to stop and apprehend an unidentified superhuman threat.
The underappreciated William Messner-Loebs was responsible for this turn in Captain Cold's carrer path:
