Gary Bornholdt, tax counsel for Nixon Peabody LLP and former legislative counsel to the Joint Tax Committee, died Saturday as he was shoveling snow. He was 42 years old.

Mr. Bornholdt specialized in tax-exempt finance, tax-credit bonds, as well as bond-related legislation, regulation and tax controversies for the firm, which he joined in July 2008. He had been retained along with Mitchell Rapaport, a partner at the firm, by the Regional Bond Dealers Association to help it develop legislative and regulatory strategies and proposals for municipal bonds.
