Is It Possible to Change Practice Areas in Big Law Firms?

By
Question:
I am currently a second-year associate and have decided I want to switch my practice from litigation to corporate law. My current firm does not have a strong corporate practice, so I am thinking of accepting an offer to join the litigation practice of another firm that has a really strong corporate practice. While I did not say this on the interview, of course, my goal is to make a practice-group switch from litigation to corporate after I join this new firm. My question is this: Assuming I accept my offer at this new firm, how long should I wait before I disclose to the litigation partners that I plan to switch to the firm's corporate group? (R.J., New York City)
