Associate with Labor & Employment Law Experience Wants to Work in BigLaw

Question

I have been working in small firm in New Jersey practicing labor and employment law since I graduated from Rutgers in 2003. I was in the top third of my class and was on Law Review. I really want to make the jump to a top-tier New York firm, as I feel I have developed my skills to a point where I can excel at a higher level. Is there any chance I can transition to a top labor and employment practice in New York City?
