Mr Morecombe, a Vampire, has been the Ramkin family lawyer for hundreds of years. He is a partner in Morecombe, Slant & Honeyplace is probably Ankh-Morpork's foremost (and most expensive) legal firm. Mr Slant, a Zombie, is the most feared legal adversary in the city. Little has been said about Mr Honeyplace, who probably shares the legal responsibilities of the Wealthy with Mr Morecombe. Clearly Mr. Morecombe meets the stereotypical standards for his profession being a 'blood sucking' lawyer. Mr. Morecombe's name is likely a shout out to the great British comedy duo Morecombe and Wise although there is a town of called Morecambe in Lancashire.
