Probably not the best idea from a conflicts-checking perspective.
Where is the conflict? How is it any different from lateraling?
There could be independence issues and when you start the summer, a firm may require you to disclose any/all conflicts (i.e. working at another firm). Interestingly, the firm that I worked for as a 1L and the firm that I will work for next summer opposed one another in a very large IP/Antitrust case. While this alone will not impair my independence, it is important that it is nevertheless documented.
