I’m not sure because I’m not in privacy, but a number of associates and partners at my firm have put it on their LinkedIn pages in front of their names like it’s a KBE or something. So it must be important.

Looks great on your resume but doesn't do much in terms of actually improving your privacy knowledge. CIPM is actually an exception though - can be very helpful if you don't already know how to set up and manage a privacy program

Clients find the certification critical because it helps the attorney manage large-scale compliance projects from both the legal and business side of things. Most large companies look for the certifications when outside or inside counsel oversee privacy compliance programs. The certifications are inexpensive and your firm should cover the tests and certification costs. It also should help you individually as the partners can market you to clients as a privacy expert.

It has!
