Don't be shy of emailing to signal your availability. Not all the partners might be clued into your experience (or even your hire), so a short write up about your experience when signalling your availability wouldn't hurt especially since you arent a junior. This is from a fellow midlevel who lateraled in the middle of a pandemic and have not seen my colleagues in person since I started 5 months ago.

Just make sure everyone in your practice group know that you are new and that you have capacity - I think I started emailing people a bit too late.
