Third Year Associate Wants to Switch Practice Areas

By
Question:
I am a third year associate practicing Tax Law at a large firm in New York. I want to switch firms, but I also want to switch practice areas - maybe to Intellectual Property. I took some IP classes in law school and I have a technical undergraduate degree so I think it will be an easy transition. What do you think?
